Make a copy of your client auth certificate template. Name it something like Client Auth - Mobile Device. Then change the options on the Subject Name tab to allow specifying the subject name in the request.

You may need to change other options as well, such as the ability to export the private key on the Request Handling Tab. On the Issuance tab you may or may not want CA manager approval checked. And finally, be sure the correct users and/or groups have the right to read, and enroll on the Security tab.

Once you get the template the way you want it you can make a request via the web service at http://CA-server name/certsrv After the certificate is issued and installed on the machine from which you made the request you will need to open the Certificate Snap-in and export it to a .pfx file that will be placed on the SD card of the mobile device.

From there you install it just like the root.

Yes. Microsoft certificates are the same as any other. They are simply X.509 certificates.  For example, you can add a trusted root to your android device. You can add a client auth cert so you can connect to a WAP that requires certificate base authentication etc.

Do you mean you have an internal PKI or did you just purchase a 3rd party cert for OWA?  Are you saying your OWA clients have to have certificates to connect? I'm guessing no, they just need to trust the cert for OWA. Same for the android devices. If you install the root and issuing certs on the devices they will trust the cert.

On Android

Settings -> Security -> Install from SD Card
that imports .p12 certificates from the root of the SD Card. it recognizes and successfully imports .cer certificate files too!!.

[Warning, you can use usb to copy the certificate to the root of your SD Card, but be sure to disconnect otherwise the "Install from SD Card" will be greyed out.]
