I am trying to bind a Kendo mobile button to a javascript model (kendo.observable).  I'd like to have the button disabled until the model says everything is valid.  

I've created a small jsFiddle that shows my problem.   Should the mobile button be "bindable" to a kendo observable model?

Thanks,

In my project I do:

<button data-role="button" data-bind="enabled:canClick">Caption</button>

Thanks Alex.  Using a <button> works great.  

I'd be curious to hear from the Kendo team why they choose to use <a /> for the Kendo Mobile button instead of the native <button>.  Perhaps better control over styling?  I also looked through the code and I can't figure out exactly how you'd disable the <a /> button in the binders.
