This is the SINGLE fact that remains a variable for me. I think  
targeting HTML5 for desktop browsers would be a joke. But creating  
something specifically for a mobile device that also was plugged into  
a native framework could be very compelling and if something was  
hashed out on a small prototype level. I certainty might entertain  
putting some time into this.

Since I have diversified my development in other technologies, I a  
coming back to Apache Flex and the Flash Player with a different  
perspective. I have a project that will make Apache Flex look really  
good in the Android sector. I already know some inherit benefits of  
the Flex framework on mobile and want to push those farther. At the  
same time using native technologies as well.
