a) I have Geeksphone Peak as my main (and now only) phone, so I am a bit 
biased ;), OTOH, there is a bit of seriousness behind what I am saying;
b) I hope that Mozilla Foundation won't give up and my phone will be 
JS+HTML+CSS only for long time (yes, time-critical or some special apps 
may eventually be needed in native format, but consider effort to have 
MP3 codecs in Javascript for the limits where this need may hit);
c) I don't insist that terribly on 100% of all computing being done on 
my phone in JavaScript, but I DO insist that my Bible application will 
work in the metro when the phone is offline. So, whether there will be 
some prechewing on server (e.g., translation to JSON if needed) doesn't 
concern me, but in the end all data required for the work of the app 
should be present on the phone.
