If you look at the pop-up menus for Hardware and OS in the bug entry page, every single option seems to be based strictly on desktop or server hardware/OS'es. Considering mobile platforms are now a significant chunk of the market and they can all pretty well use the Bugzilla Web interface, it's very surprising that Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry are all missing. Don't forget that Web or app devs may be reporting issues with mobile platforms and want to select them during a bug report.

Of course, tablet users might "hide" their agent string (I use Firefox + Phony extension on my Nexus 7 and 10 to set it to Desktop Firefox), but we still need mobile platforms listed, so that they can be manually selected if needed.

The only related bug I can see to this is bug 935771 which covers the Windows Mobile platform, but I think all common mobile platforms should be covered too.
