Microsoft has worked with Nitobi to bring their PhoneGap HTML5 developer framework to Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
On Windows Phone 7 this provides another option besides Silverlight and XNA for developers to bring their apps to the platform.
- Access Device Information (UDDI and stuff)
- Add and search Contacts
- Connection status (network / wifi connection status)
- Alerts/Notification (alert and confirm)
- Media Capture (Image and Audio)
A recent survey by Appcelerator & IDC’s of mobile developers has shown 66% of developers interesting in developing on the HTML5 platform, and this framework will ease access for those developers to the Windows Phone 7 platform.
