Hello Googie,

In essence a mobile and a tablet are the same device type except for the size and the fact that you cannot use a tablet as a phone (with some tablets you can).

You could try to get the the platform and the version of the platform and you might see a difference but if the OS and OS version is the same I do not think you will see any difference.

How? See http://lessons.livecode.com/m/2592/l/12 ... em-version

Maybe anybody else has a great idea?
