Updating the post below, about MatPlotLib on Mobile OS.
MatPlotLib 1.2.0 was released (in 09/02/2013) for MeeGo Harmattan OS (for Nokia N9/N950). Including Qt4/PySide backend. See the Talk Maemo.org topic :
Also for MeeGo Harmattan OS :
- NumPy 1.7.0 was released today (11/02/2013), just 1 day after the mainstream release :
- IPython 0.13.1, including Notebook and Qt console interfaces, was released in 22/01/2013. See the Talk Maemo.org topic :
See also my blog article comparing scientific Python tools for computers, tablets and smartphones :
The conclusion is very simple : real mobile Linux (with glibc, X11, dependencies, etc) are better for scientific Python. Like Maemo 5 OS and MeeGo Harmattan OS. And future Sailfish OS and Ubuntu Phone OS can follow the same path.

It is my first post to matplotlib-dev. I am a theoretical physicist
interested a lot in Python/IPython/SymPy/NumPy/MatPlotLib/etc. Both for
desktop OS and mobile OS.
About mobile OS (for smartphones/tablets), MatPlotLib is packaged
and works well in :
- MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan OS on Nokia N9/N950, released in 2011, with Nokia
N9 selling since September/October. MatPlotLib 1.0.0 was released
yesterday by me (as a maintainer) :
- Maemo 5 (Fremantle) OS on Nokia N900, released in 11/2009 and
currently difficult to buy brand new. Install using "# apt-get install
NumPy, SymPy and IPython are also available for both OS. I have searched
and found that there is no MatPlotLib for Android OS, iOS and Symbian.
So it seems that the only smartphone selling today with MatPlotLib
support is Nokia N9 (MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan OS). The repositories for Nokia
show about 170 Python packages.
MeeGo Harmattan is also a developer's paradise, with more than 10
programming languages available now (via "apt-get install" or already
installed) : gcc/g++ (3.4, 4.2, 4.4), gfortran 4.4, gpc (GNU Pascal
2.2), Lua 5.1, Perl 5.8, Prolog, Python 2.5/2.6/3.1, Ruby 1.8, TCL
8.4/8.5, Vala 0.12, etc. Also Qt/C++, Qt/Qt Quick, Qt/Python (PySide).
