     I've added an item "IPython for Mobile OS" to the IPython Wiki 
(https://github.com/ipython/ipython/wiki). Feel free to revise.

     Maemo & MeeGo were cited, as well as Aakash Android tablet. But I 
haven't found details about IPython on Aakash : which version, if there 
is a working IPython terminal, etc. IPython Notebook web client use on 
mobile OS is also commented. See :

     If anybody has tested iOS, BlackBerry OS, Windows Mobile/Phone OS, 
etc, web browsers as good IPython Notebook web clients, please 
contribute to the above Wiki.
