Hi ram27,
There's a post on the EE Blog listing some popular frameworks. Currently, what you're asking for is difficult if what you mean is one code base that you can compile to every native format. Typically, having an app that is native in every OS means you need to develop for each device separately. HTML5 frameworks have the most promise, since they use, well, HTML. But this can limit you in scope, depending on what you want your app to do, as you'd be developing for the lowest common denominator in HTML5 API device/hardware support (which currently means that developing for Webkit gives you the most options).

I could be wrong, but the only way that I am aware of that you can develop for every one of the devices you mention is to use HTML5 (with heavy dependencies on Javascript) and compile to each via Phonegap.

Although it doesn't cover all of the platforms you want you may want to look into Titanium by Appcelerator. The platform itself is pretty solid, and I have worked on some successful applications using it.

In your case, because you want Windows Phone 7, PhoneGap (now called Apache Cordova) would be your best choice.

Erm, I think you can adequately paraphrase

No platform supports all the mentioned platforms

Currently, what you're asking for is difficult if what you mean is one code base that you can compile to every native format ... the only way that I am aware of that you can develop for every one of the devices you mention is to use HTML5 ... and compile to each via Phonegap.
It was the nice way of saying, "No platform supports all the mentioned platforms" given that you are specifically asking for a "framework"  ;)

I believe that the links and explanations here constitute a decent enough reason for not deleting this thread, for posterity.

Sorry we couldn't help.
