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 you`re right. Running offline would be making the calculations on the phone`s 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. play.google.com/store/apps/… Also worth to mention is Addi, an open source "mathematical computing environment like Matlab and Octave" aviliable on F-Droid, at f-droid.org/wiki/page/com.addi –  svarog Nov 18 '13 at 8:53
