POLL: Mobile development, native or HTML 5 based?

A timely post on InfoWorld made me think of a poll that would be interesting to see how the general community feels on the subject.  I do have my own opinions however; after playing with the Android SDK and creating some basic applications for the device.  In short, until we get JavaScript libraries like jQTouch for all major frameworks like Dojo and JQuery or HTML supports such API’s it will be hard to completely develop with HTML 5 and JavaScript alone.  However, I do think HTML 5 + JavaScript should be the right answer in the long run but today I would have to go with option 3 – both Native and HTML 5 for the development choice. The good news is most of the development for platforms like Android use Eclipse for both web and native so you can essentially learn and develop everything for free!

What do you think?
