The main deciding factor should be the type of site or application that is being developed and the content that is being presented. A marketing site for instance, such as a company's homes page, catalogs, libraries, and wikis are well suited for responsive design. Productivity applications, such as customer management applications, business intelligence tools, and inventory applications are good candidates for a jQuery Mobile based user interface. These types of applications require quick response time, easy to use data entry forms, and would benefit from utilizing the device's native controls. Customers who are used to quickly flipping through data using touch controls in native applications will get much the same experience with their jQuery Mobile applications, such as paginating through content using swipe, orientation change to make better use of space and context sensitive soft-keypads. Ideally of course, these type of applications would still have their desktop-orientated pages be somewhat responsive so that they work well on desktops as well as tablets.
