We are currently planning a project to develop a web site by using MVC4. We need to target 3 types of browsers: desktop, 7'' and up tablets, smart phones (around 4'').
I understand MVC4 has display mode provider to support different views by user agent. On the other hand we think tablet resolution is close to desktop resolution, we would like to reuse the same set of view for these 2.
However tablet is also a touch device, in the smart phone view we would like to use jQuery mobile to be touch friendly. But we also try to lower the cost of development to comebine desktop broswer and tablet broswer to use same view.
Under this circumstance what is the best option to make a desktop view also friendly to touch device? Is it safe to blindly adopt jQuery mobile development?
Thanks for any experience or input, we are exploring in a dark world now.

jQuery Mobile (much like jQuery) is very well proven, widely adopted and you shouldn't really have any issue with using it regarding touch interactions (although I am sure there are
many other libraries that can help accomplish handle touch events).
You should consider looking into
"Responsive Design" techniques and frameworks as well to help you design a single site that will handle styling elements and it's overall appearance based on the current device that the user is using. Some of the more popular frameworks relating to Responsive
Design can be found below :
Using one of these frameworks to help you structure your site around will make the process much quicker and much less strenous.
