Opera Mini supports the canvas element, but is unable to play animations or run other more complex applications. Android 2.x supports canvas except the toDataURL() function. See http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=7901 Some (slow) workarounds are described here: http://stackoverflow.com/q/10488033/841830
