After a problem where I could not scroll the application up and down with the touch screen, I soon saw the quality of the Phonegap CSS in all it's glory on my phone:

Phonegap example app running on my HTC Desire

The scrolling issue needed a slight code adjustment:

function init(){
document.addEventListener("touchmove", false);
document.addEventListener("deviceready", deviceInfo, true);

The first line of the function did read: document.addEventListener("touchmove", preventBehavior, false);

I will now continue to play with Phonegap but I'm starting to see it's limitations. I can see it not being very responsive and obviously games are out of the question. When I say games I mean anything with any movement, puzzle and strategy etc should be ok. In fact it maybe worth looking at some existing Javascript stuff and maybe porting it to Phonegap.
