PhoneGap, an open source platform that makes building mobile applications easy with HTML and JavaScript skills most web developers already possess. Using PhoneGap, web developers can use HTML, CSS and JavaScript to access native device features like accelerometer, contacts, camera and geolocation.

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to combine your HTML/JavaScript skills with PhoneGap to build applications for multiple mobile platforms. We will look at authoring raw JavaScript targeting HTML5 and Device APIs. Then we'll have a look at some popular frameworks including: XUI, Lawnchair, jqTouch, Sencha, jQuery Mobile and Jo.
