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)

Yes, HTML5 is a great platform23320.73
Yes, because having a single platform to target multiple devices is needed (regardless of the actual language used)35931.94
Yes, for other reasons171.51
Maybe. Not sure34830.96
No, we should use a different platform other than HTML5484.27
No, we should stick to the technology that suits the individual device968.54
No, for other reasons.353.11

GeneralNot just multiple devices, but multiple browsers Pin

The resistance I've seen to HTML 5 in favor of native development is mostly from cross-browser incompatibilities and overall poor quality of those browsers. There are significant deficiencies in all of the browsers that are expensive to workaround. Given those costs and the few native platforms, the balance leans toward native development.
