1) Provide local storage i.e. offline database and caching
2) Build in geolocation support
3) video - in-language support for playing multiple video formats
5) canvas - in-language support for animation and graphics

Nice support for graphics.

Please mention your requirements, based on which i can suggest whether a switch is required or not.

Basically, if you want to support your webapp on mobile devices like Iphone or Android, then using HTML5 is best way forward since it can make your web app look like a native app.

Gurvinder Pal SinghCommented:
Building on mobile devices is more about correct sizing and positioning of elements, and a layout which can make appropriate use of the given size and resolution of a device than any framework as such.

If you are well versed with Jquery, then it should be good enough

Jquery mobile is released but still in alpha stage as far as i know.

HTML5 has nothing to do with correct sizing and positioning of elements. Its the CSS that gives styles to the HTML content.

Only Jquery should be good enough
