Will Tablets eventually be supported?

e-roadmap

#1

I was just skimming through the supported devices list and I came to the conclusion that they were all phones–if not mostly.

My question is then pretty straight-forward:

Will tablets eventually be supported?

Yes, the /e/ road map starts with smartphones and moves ahead to other devices at a later stage. At present the team is busy with the development and testing for version 1.0 release which is due in February 2019. We will be updating our road map on the website https://e.foundation/e-solutions/ with details of how /e/ plans to develop and move ahead. At present our focus is on smartphones.

Hello Manoj,

You talk about v 1.0 release due in february 2019 we are near april 2019. SO I have another question (don’t finbd another place to ask), how late will it be, can we hope it before summer on smartphone ? For tablets is quite far by now.

This question is discussed e.g. in

Hi @ecoenergie38 , @ff2u I agree with you. We missed the deadline by a huge margin. V1 was actually planned for January 2019! Now we are reaching April. Q1 is almost over and we are still testing. The problem is we have a small development team as of today which has to handle the defects on the Gitlab + new innovations + enhancements. This stretches timelines. We should have the release ready before summer.
We have plans on adding to the development team in the near future. That is keeping in view future development including upgrade to Pie and making the ROM more robust and flexible for the user. An OS which can be used on Tablets as well as laptop is definitely on our roadmap.
