It uses an OpenGL to OpenGLES 1.1 emulation layer and renders to an off-screen texture which later is copied into the framebuffer and displayed by SDL which on most modern tablets/smartphones uses OpenGLES 2 for this task. YMMV in terms of stability of the 3d canvas depending on the quality of the device vendor's OpenGLES implementation.
