The year of the Linux tablet?

<p>considering that a lot of GNOME developers have been working in the mobile and embedded space for a living, it should surprise at all that we decided to bring some stuff from that experience over.</p>
<p>it's also the nature of things: it happened in Apple, it happened in Microsoft, and it happens to users as well. more and more people are using smartphones: they are getting used to some of the concepts, semantics and experiences of the smartphone user interface. the line has been blurred to the point that there is a continuum of usage: start a task on the phone, follow through on the tablet, then resume on the desktop. designing for that flow is neither new nor unexpected.</p>
