PhoneGap / Apache Callback project accepted in the Apache Incubator

The vote to accept the Apache Callback project in the Apache Software Foundation Incubator was open for the last 72 hours, and that vote just passed earlier today.

Apache Callback is the free open source software evolution of the popular PhoneGap project.

Apache Callback is a platform for building native mobile applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Apache Callback allows Web developers to natively target Apple iOS, Google Android, RIM BlackBerry, Microsoft Windows Phone 7, HP webOS, Nokia Symbian and Samsung Bada with a single codebase. The Callback APIs are based on open Web standards and enable access to native device capabilities, including the device camera, compass, accelerometer, microphone or address book for example, from HTML5 apps.

That's really great news for the mobile app developer community! ... and I'll be watching this project very closely in the next few months!
