Until now one notable exception from the list of supported phone was Windows Phone 7. Now PhoneGap not only has WP7 support, but the very latest Mango release is the target.
To make use of it you need Visual Studio and the WP7 SDK, but the free Express version also works. A new PhoneGap application type is provided as a project template. The target browser is IE9 rather than a webkit derived browser but essentially everything should work in the same way as for other WebKit/PhoneGap supported phones.
Currently the system supports:
Still to come in the next version:
- Compass (almost)
- Events (partial, still underway)
There are still some problems and omissions, but for a first version it is looking good and closes the only major hole in PhoneGap support.
