Wanted to share that the jQuery Mobile framework looks and performs really great in Web content rendered on PlayBook.
Use this framework to add great looking UI to your Browser and WebWorks applications. Note: the PlayBook Web browser will be available in a future version of the PlayBook simulator, and the WebWorks SDK for PlayBook is available today.
If you are interested in trying it out for yourself, use the following config.xml document and the WebWorks SDK for PlayBook to produce your own sample app. This sample loads and displays live content from the jQuery Mobile Demo site (so you will need an active network connection):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets" version="22.214.171.124"> <name>jQueryMobile</name> <description>Shows live content from the jQuery Mobile 1.0a2 Demo website. Application created using the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK.</description> <author href="http://jquerymobile.com/demos/1.0a2/">Your Name Here</author> <license href="http://jquery.org/license"/> <access subdomains="true" uri="http://jquerymobile.com"/> <access subdomains="true" uri="http://code.jquery.com"/> <access subdomains="true" uri="http://jquery.org"/> <content src="http://jquerymobile.com/demos/1.0a2/"/> </widget>

It wouldn't compile. It said that it did successfully but the .bar doesn't show up anywhere. Then when I remove all the jquerymobile folders, it actually does work.

i was playing with it myself tonight and it seems to work pretty well. The only thing I noticed is the text input fields looking a bit borked at the rounded corners. Not sure if the WebKit version on the final playbook is going to be different from what's on the current simulator?
Anyway even with the mildly broken text inputs it's still something very nice to use if you want a pretty looking UI without having to dive into UI design.
