I know matlab mobile was just released for android.

Nowadays several mobiles got hardware enough to run some decent calculations...

So question is: Is there a way to run matlab offline on a emulator (like octave does) or another workaround?

Be careful with the term 'emulator'. Octave uses a terminal emulator, so that's software running in Android. On this site the term emulator usually refers to software running a version of Android so you don't need a phone. Could you please elaborate on what exactly you mean by 'run offline on an emulator'? – THelper Oct 26 '12 at 6:52
@THelper Ok youre right. Running offline would be making the calculations on the phones hw. But matlab mobile requires you to send data to your server (or cloud) so you get the results done. – DBS Oct 26 '12 at 17:10
A MATLAB Android port is now available on Google Play.… Also worth to mention is Addi, an open source "mathematical computing environment like Matlab and Octave" aviliable on F-Droid, at – svarog Nov 18 '13 at 8:53
