Hi, just to add a few bits to this interesting debate. We recently had 2 
cases of mobile projects, on one we only did usability testing and UX 
Both of these projects opted for Sencha. The reason behind this was 
mainly because JQuery Mobile and other alternatives are simply slow.

On mobile, speed is of great importance. It can really paralyze a shop 
if it's slow. Use Local caching wherever you can. Think offline. The 
more you can do on cell phone (without making it slow) the better.

Many areas are covered only with Edge connectivity which is horrible, so 
keep that in mind.

Most importantly, use the site on Edge as much as you can. That will 
give you a good overview of what's wrong with it.

And by all means, although it's a big shop, in terms of user experience, 
don't think the same way as you do on desktop. It's not the same user.
Typing for one is hell :) Filling out forms is slow,...

Hope it helps :)
