I would suggest not mentioning smartphones and tablets (perhaps just
"device" instead), we do not have good support for these. We are missing
both hardware support and appropriate user interfaces. The former is due
to fragmentation on the ARM platform, locked bootloaders, non-free
drivers, GPL violations and code not getting upstream. The latter is
mostly due to the missing hardware support.
