The jQuery announce they are working on the new jQuery Mobile Project.

The jQuery team have announced the jQuery Mobile Project!

Currently, the team are working on improving the core jQuery library to work across the major mobile platforms, and a mobile UI framework is under development.

Supported platforms include Android, webOS, Windows Mobile and Blackberry OS, and supported browsers include Opera Mobile, Opera Mini and Phonegap. In the project’s strategy, available online, the team stress that they are targeting a wide variety of mobile browsers. “Thus far no other framework has attempted to target as many mobile browsers as we have,” reads the strategy webpage.

The project has attracted sponsorship from some of the major mobile browser vendors, including Palm and Mozilla. A release is scheduled for later this year.
