For what I get to understand from ESTA answer in SO, using a container with the property overflow hidden and playing with margin and padding of an internal div, you can get to hide the scroll bar.
There's even a Fiddle where it works.
The structure used to obtain the effect is as follows:
/* Make sure the inner div is not larger than the container
* so that we have room to scroll.
/* Pick an arbitrary margin/padding that should be bigger
* than the max width of all the scroll bars across
* the devices you are targeting.
* padding = -margin
I hope it helps you.
