Is HTML5 a good choice for mobile application development?

Survey period: 10 Dec 2012 to 17 Dec 2012

Avoiding the topic of non-mobile development, does it make sense for ua to move to HTML5 as a write-once-run-anywhere platform for mobile devices? (I'll use "HTML5 platform" to mean HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and whatever interpreters/compilers are needed)

As if Android, Windows Mobile or Apple have something in common. Or there was something except ANSI C in common.

Frankly, I don't want to see the same UI on all mobile. It's moronic. I want to feel the start menu of Windows, the bubbles of Mac, and the .. whatever it is on Android.

HTML (5 or not)? No thanks. If this is why processors have become two times bigger at the expense of "occasional" glitches, just for some ugly accordion controls (or because WebKit uses too much std::shared_ptr than HTML can bear), then I want a mobile device with Windows NT4 ugliness and speed. Good days when I switch from the monitor and when I looked again, the logon screen was already there. But that's just <me. *


* Sorry, program crashed because element <me have no closing >.
