Its not a bad idea, but I've found the 'Favorite Forums' list on the left hand side of any board page (when logged in) to be especially helpful in this regard. It makes for a quick jump to any device's forum I want to frequent.

The biggest problem that I see is when people take liberties with the naming of their devices, or add all kinds of extra details like which ROM they are using. It would be very difficult to generate a fixed hyperlink from someone's custom text. Alot of folks like to use nicknames for their phones or shorthand too. And if you give folks the ability to anchor their own customized link to a device there, it would potentially become an issue of abuse - lots of links would be directed to places other than the on the forum here.

Yeah, for navigating to the sections of devices you use, I'd recommend the favourite forums tool, as already mentioned. A link to any section you want will show up on the left of the screen when browsing the forum.

When it comes to navigating to sections of devices you don't use, I think that would only really be useful for staff and so wouldn't be a priority to add.
