I tried to reproduce the behaviour on iPhone 4S and Kindle Fire tablet but to no avail. Could you please specify what KendoUI version you are using? Everything seems to work fine with service pack release 2012.3.1315 and Q1 Beta 2013.1.226.
Please check my test page and let me know what I am missing.
