    Comments about oreilly Mobile HTML5:

    Mobile HTML5 by Estelle Weyl provides a very deep insight into the world of the HTML5 standards, and how it got here. In today's fragmented divergent methods and approaches to building mobile applications, native or otherwise, this text gives a clear and concise explanation of the various aspects one needs to consider. In developing stuff that runs on mobile devices, HTML5 is only one part of the components the developer needs to know about. Estelle explains each of these components (HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript) with great clarity and with a subtle sense of humor, taking the opportunity to make digs and jabs whenever possible.

    This book makes an excellent reference as well, looking back at the various methods and their examples as I next work on the hands-on learning process. I must say however, that while I have a much better understanding of what goes into writing mobile solutions using HTML5, there is much that this book leaves to other resources. Making something simple is not easy, and as a Windows Mobile 8 developer, Android (and IOS) platforms appear to still be in need of more standardization. Writing my first Android app in HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript will take more learning.
