I don't believe Wolfram currently offers a version of Mathematica that runs under either Android or iOS. >The second question is for group members from Wolfram: Is Wolfram >planning to sell also Android version of Mathematica in the future? I've no idea. You would need to ask someone at Wolfram about such plans. >If not, would it be teorethicaly possible to run Mathematica on >Windows 8 running on ARM processor platform? In theory, yes, it should be possible. Whether it is practical or profitable for Wolfram to do so is the real issue.
