    I want have two dates, but where you can only choose month and year, the code snippet:
    <label for="syear">Anfangsdatum:
     <input type="month" id="start" min="" max=""/>
    With emulator or browser everything is ok, but when I test it on an real android mobile, only type="date" works. Is that a common problem?

    Hi Nod,

    According to this HTML 5 compatibility table, input type=date (or month) is not supported on Android as a whole, so your best option would be to use a 3rd party date picker (jQuery, Kendo UI etc.).
