    Is it suppose to be possible to launch and run Mist in a Chrome browser directly on a tablet (more specifically a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with the Android Chrome browser installed)?

    I tried this and although I was able to login that was all I was able to do.  The Welcome "Your Name" at the top right of the screen has a drop down arrow for "Options" and "Logout" but this button does not work on the tablet.

    I can click on the "New" button to create a new project but the "My Projects" button does not work at all (the My projects button area turns white, the New button remains its blue color, and my existing projects are not displayed).

    Hi Courtney,

    That's a great question. As you have noticed, currently Mist  does not work properly on Android tables. It is tested and supposed to work on most of the modern desktop browsers (best in Chrome).
    We imagine that Most of the users working with Icenium would be mostly desktop/laptop developers and that's why we've focused first on those.
    However as demand grows we'll do our best to make it work on most popular tablest as well. We have done some preliminary work on making it work on iPad (most of the things). 

    Stay tuned for future updates on this.

    Greetings
