    PhoneGap.com: Your WRT apps can work on iPhone, Palm, BlackBerry and Android too!

    PhoneGap is an open source development tool for building fast, easy mobile apps with JavaScript.

    If you’re a web developer who wants to build mobile applications in HTML and JavaScript while still taking advantage of the core features in the Symbian, iPhone, Palm, BlackBerry, and Android, PhoneGap is for you.

    To port your WRT app to PhoneGap, all you have to do is change your device & service api calls to use PhoneGap's Javascript API, and you'll instantly have ported your application to all of the above devices.

    Symbian support is not listed on PhoneGap homepage, but don't fret; here it is:

    Thanks for the headsup ... we are launching a new site very soon, but nonetheless that content should be updated.

    thanks for heads up. do you know if the WRTKit UI library functions with phonegap or would we need to port to another javascript UI framework like jquery or something?

    Good question. From what I understand about WRTKit, it is simply a set of javascript & css ui libraries, and does not access any native WRT functionality. Therefore, it should work just fine within the PhoneGap framework and across the other platforms. However the UI elements in WRT kit would likely be geared towards Nokia resolutions/pixel densities, so they may not have the same appearance on iPhone, Palm, etc.

    Will add trying this out as a to-do; but if you feel like trying out PhoneGap, give it a shot & share your experience with the community here and at http://groups.google.com/group/phonegap/.

    The questions is more if the device will support jquery. In most cases PhoneGap uses the native on-device browser engine. So in most cases if the device browser supports jquery, so will PhoneGap. In select implementations (the in-development Symbian Qt implementation, for example), webkit is packaged with PhoneGap.

    So to answer your question, yes I believe all of the browser engines are modern enough to support jQuery, except maybe WinMo :P.
