Wouldn't it suffice to add a switch at the bottom of the screen, making
it possible to switch manually between mobile and desktop view? I
noticed the Asus Transformer is detected as a mobile browser and an iPad
is showing the desktop view. This might be a setting in these browsers,
or in the 'mobile' detection code of spring.

I noticed moving gadgets around is not working on tablets, when in
'desktop' mode. I don't know if this is a limitation on tablets, because
of the touch interface, or because jquery does some detection on his
part and disabling dragging gadgets around. The behavior is fine with
me, although I also believe there will be people who want full
functionality on their tablets.

So besides the difference in layout between mobile and desktop view, I
think there should be a distinction between fully functional (including
configuring the portal) and view-only.
