The Android and IOS browsers (both based on webkit) have been our
primary target, because they implement the "touchmove" event, which we
need to support dragging the map with the finger. OpenLayers might
work in other mobile/touch devices, but you won't be able to move and
zoom the map with touch gestures. You can look at Chris Schmidt's blog
[*] and the mobile section of the OpenLayers doc [**] for more
