As a web dev, to me, any screen with > 800-1000 px max width resolution can show any sane web page without any modifications.

However, that can't be relied on when they pack those pixels into a tiny screen.

However, most tablets really have little difference from a laptop screen size, and a laptop was never an issue for a webpage.

So the trick is hoping that android and android vendors leave off the 'mobile' string in the ua, with this last fix, all future devices that do not use mobile and are android will be identified, which covers basically all non ipad tablets/chromebooks, etc.

the actual change that is not yet handled because the ua strings are not yet out in the wild are the new chrome/opera rendering engine, blink I think it's called, fork from applewebkit, running current chrome but id as applewebkit still, and I believe the next major opera release will use it but I don't know what the ua string will look like yet.

But opera is not a player anymore, they blew it a long time ago, except in mobile spaces on cheap handsets.
