The code sample you have used seems ok. The code posted seems to be working with the current CDN version too (your sample uses Q2 2012) - check this jsbin. My guess is that something may have gone wrong with the kendo.mobile.min.js file (partial download, for instance). Can you please try re-downloading the bundle?
