Yes - to a degree. The website http://caniuse.com/ details HTML5 availability for the following browsers:

  • iOS Safari
  • Opera Mini
  • Opera Mobile
  • Android Browser

You can, with some limitations. Basically you'd better use some "pre-cooked" framework like Senche Touch or jQuery Mobile.

Simple answer: the best support for HTML5 in mobile phones is given by iOS and Android browsers.


Yes you can! and about compatibity... it depends on the browser... the new versions of safari that run on the iOs 4++ support html 5...


iOS and Android will both support HTML5 and CSS3 (and well). You'll run into some problems with windows mobile (which runs a modified version of ie7)


Back in April, sources announced that LG would be the first company to launch an HTML5 compatible browser.

Where this was over 6 months ago, I haven't been able to find any other sources that woukd indicate whether any phone browsers would support it.

The best thing to do would to point your mobile device (or emulate one) to a site made with HTML5.


After a little more research I found this quote from the apple.com site.

"Every new Apple mobile device and every new Mac — along with the latest version of Apple’s >Safari web browser — supports web standards including HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript."
