    I'm having a problem with the Kendo UI mobile framework, my mobile website contains form input fields. Some have a declared type "date"or "time" and when clicking these it opens up the native selection method for this type of form. Unfortunately when "accepting"or clearing the input with this it crashes the mobile browser.

    Testing was done with a Samsung Galaxy Note - Android version 4.0.3 , hope you can help with fixing this issue

    Hi Henk,

    This is a known bug of the browser in Samsung phones running Android 4.0 - Samsung decided to extend their input elements with HTML5 support, but the support is rather broken in 4.0 and if the input element is placed on a transformed element and its value modified, the browser crashes. Can you reproduce the issue in our demo site? If you don't, then setting the useNativeScrolling configuration option on the View may help.
