qx.Mobile has now optimized page layout for tablet devices.
It depends on the also new device type detection. Several hardware devices, mobile operating systems or browsers are mapped to 3 device classes: “mobile”, “tablet” or “desktop”. The device type detection is available as an environment setting and gives you the possibility to provide functionality specific for each device class.
Based upon this detection, our new page manager is able to arrange its managed pages in an optimized layout, either for mobile or tablet devices. Mobile layout stays as you know it. Tablet layout considers display/window orientation. There is a layout mode for devices in portrait or landscape mode. The tablet layout updates automatically when you rotate the tablet device by an angle of 90 degrees. The tablet feeling and behavior is very similar to native tablet applications.
You can test qx.Mobile tablet support with the Mobile Showcase (developer version). If you visit the showcase application with a desktop or tablet (iPad, Android Tablet) you can test the tablet layout. On mobile devices (iPhone, Android) you can try the mobile view.
