Subject Re: Flex Mobile components in desktop/browser applications

I'm no mobile expert so I don't know about other components, but I found
myself rewriting a desktop version of Callout and CalloutButton just last
week.
Bear in mind that functionality may somewhat differ, especially when it
comes to user interaction. For instance my desktop CalloutButton will pop
the Callout on mouse rollover or click (can be configured), whereas the
mobile version reacts to touch events (obviously).
