We don't have a tablet view.  Two reasons:

+ jquerymobile does not natively support a separate tablet view.   
There is talk of supporting this in the future, but it is not there yet.
+ This is a substantial addition and would likely require a company to  
sponsor the development.

Not going to keep a ticket open for this feature alone.

This cannot be done at this time without a substantial increase in the  
code size.  Bug #10719 needs to be fixed before this is done.

And there are other UI issues also that are not easily solvable given  
the current jquerymobile code.

This will not be added.  smartmobile is meant to be a *quick* way of  
accessing your mailbox.  It is not meant to be a full-featured mail

I assume you mean the dynamic view?  There will never be a paged UI  
for this view.
