This also means that PHONEGAP has fully implemented support for all major mobile platforms.

PhoneGap is an open-source, cross-platform mobile application development framework that enables developers to develop cross-platform applications using only standard network technologies (HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript). PhoneGap's goal is to achieve "one-time development, running on any mobile terminal platform". Prior to release 1.3, the PHONEGAP framework's compatible platform includes: IOS, Android, Blackberry, WebOS, Symbian.

Currently, Windows phone developers can call all the PhoneGap APIs for cross-platform WP application development. You can find out more details or view Microsoft's announcements by PhoneGap core developer Jess Macfadyen's blog .
