    Hi all,
      i'm trying to open the http://demos.kendoui.com/web/dropdownlist/remotedatasource.html url on a Motorola Xoom with Android 3.2, but the dropdownlist doesn't show any data except the waiting cursor. Is it a known issue?

    Thanks
      Francesco

    Hello Francesco,

    Thank you for drawing our attention to this issue. I tried to reproduce it and I got the same behavior. Therefore I forwarded it to our developer team for further investigation.
    As a sign of gratitude I updated your points.

    Hello Francesco,

     
    It seams that the problem is related with the Netflix OData service. If you try to request any title from Netflix, the result will be zero. We will modify the URLs to use different source.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Georgi,
      the link you posted returns data, and i don't understand why the example works fine on the PC browsers and not on mobile devices.

    Thanks

    Hi Francesco,

     
    There was an issue with NetFlix at the time I have write the message. Now it operates normally and I was able to observe the issue. The native Android browser throws an exception "Unexpected token ILLEGAL" when a JSONP request is made to the odata.netflix.com. You can verify this if you open this link in a Android device with 3+ version of the OS. After further research of the problem a thread in the NetFlix pop out. It clearly shows that this is a known issue. Here is another thread related with Android device, JSONP request and NetFlix. You can test this jsFiddle demo, which shows how to get data from geonames using JSONP and everything works as expected. We will further investigate the issue and if it is neccessary we will change the ODATA service which we use in the demos.
