PhoneGap and SharePoint

For Mobile Start HTML5 Mobile web App, then PhoneGap (wrapper to interact with devices),
Xamarin, recompiles to each platform, lastly write for each native platform thin iOS/objective C for Apple. PhoneGap and Xamarin are comparable with respect to performance and have trade-offs based on code reuse, developer skill set, and integration into standard developer tool sets

Idea: Start by building HTML5 sites with a responsive design then leverage these HTML5, CSS and JS assets hooking into SharePoint and extend with device capabilities using Hybrid framework (PhoneGap)
