jQuery project has just published the expected jQuery Mobile; the touch-optimized web framework for smartphones & tablets. A unified user interface system across all popular mobile device platforms, built on the rock-solid jQuery and jQuery UI foundation. Its lightweight code is built with progressive enhancement, and has a flexible, easily themeable design.
It is built on top of jQuery and provides a unified user interface system that’ll perform the same in all popular mobile device platforms.
The framework is built around the principle of progressive enhancement and uses the HTML5 and CSS3 features but degrades nicely for browsers that don’t support them.
Currently, there are various components offered like pages-dialogs, toolbars, buttons, content formatting, form elements and list views.
jQuery Mobile also comes with a powerful theming structure and it is app-cabaple which means it will work with real-apps besides mobile-web-apps.
It is currently in alpha release but still very promising and works in major mobile browsers.
