(Doc ID 1549109.1)
Last updated on AUGUST 19, 2019
Applies to:Oracle Communications Convergence - Version 2.0 to 3.0.1 [Release 2.0 to 3.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Convergence 2 Patch 6 added official support for standard size (9 to 10 inch / approx 25cm) tablets running the following OS and browser combinations:
- iPad iOS 6.0.1 onwards with Safari browser
- Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 onwards with Chrome browser (n.b. Chrome is not necessarily the default Android browser)
Reference: New Features in Convergence 2 Patch 6
Note the current tablet UI was not written with the intention of being used on smaller mobile phone screens and is, therefore, not officially supported on such devices. However, on smartphones with sufficient resolution, it may be found to work in a non-optimal manner on the appropriate supported browser.
The code base for the tablet version is the same as for the desktop version with Convergence detecting the platform / browser combination and adjusting the User Interface (UI) accordingly.
However, there are some differences in operation between the desktop and tablet UIs, and some limitations, which accommodate the more restricted screen area and touch screen interaction. Some of these differences are listed below.
Convergence 3.0.0 & 3.0.1 did not initially offer Tablet Support. As of Convergence 22.214.171.124.0 (and later) IOS and Android tablet support became available.
This was a re-introduction of the previous Tablet support included in Convergence 2.06 (and later).
Tablet support in 126.96.36.199.0 has essentially feature parity with that of 2.0.6 (or 2.0.7) except for some additional minor usability improvements.
Please consult the 188.8.131.52.0 patch (or later) Readme file for details on any fixes / improvements done relating to "Tablet" or "iPAD" support.
