      Comments about oreilly Mobile HTML5:

      Really enjoyed the overview of challenges for mobile developers and tools / methods to overcome those challenges. Nice flow to the presentation. Nice consideration of the many mobile devices out there.

      He could have maybe included some comments about caching files in the mobile browser, custom URIs, compiling with phone gap, working with mobile security issues and some of the JavaScript libraries for debugging .
