I'm using Icenium, but having some KendoUI issues.  I'm trying to use kendo.support.mobileOS.tablet to show a different layout for tablets than phones.  In Icenium, it is identifying both the android simulator and the android tablet simulator as tablets, but this seems to be an issue with the simulator (you can see the ticket here).  My Galaxy Note 2 is identified as a phone (which could really go either way, but is arguably correct).  My HP Touchpad with Android 4.0 installed on it correctly reports being a tablet.  However, my Nexus 10 is not being identified as a tablet because kendo.support.devicePixelRatio = 2.  With the really high resolution displays coming out, I think that the logic for if an Android device is a tablet or not needs to be revisited.  Maybe look only at the resolution, or the resolution divided by the devicePixelRatio?  Thanks for looking into this.
