[IPython-dev] idea "native" ipython notebook

     Please keep in mind that IPython Notebook currently runs on desktop 
OS and some mobile OS (MeeGo Harmattan OS, possibly Ubuntu Touch/Phone, 
Sailfish OS, etc), and the client can run on mobile OS (Android, iOS, 
etc, using the correct web browsers). Mobile OS will sell more than 
traditional OS in 2013.

     So I think it is not feasible to release native IPython Notebook 
softwares for all these plataforms...
