PhoneGap is an HTML5 and JavaScript framework that allows to build cross-platform mobile applications very easily.

Since version 1.3, PhoneGap fully supports Windows Phone and integrates into Visual Studio 2010.

For developers who are already using PhoneGap to target multiple mobile platforms, they can now also target Windows Phone 7.5.

In this demo you will see how to simply create a PhoneGap application in Visual Studio that uses Windows Phone features such as the image search or the camera.

The exact same code is then used to deploy an Android application in Eclipse.

      Are you able to say yet if PhoneGap apps created now will work with the next version of Windows Phone?

      @Ian2: the short answer to your question is no, this is not something that I am able to tell you today as there is very little that is public about the next version of Windows Phone as of today. However, considering  the popularity of PhoneGap and the fact that this is a community open source framework, you should expect it to support future popular mobile platforms once they are out there.
