Pete has some interesting thoughts on the way that the mobile market is expanding at the moment. Interesting that Android have just announced native apps comeing to ther platform.

  1. Android “native” seems somewhat flawed at this present time IMO:
    – your app is written in Java and runs through the VM; you can call-out to native code libraries through JNI (which has hardly efficient!)
    – no support for C++ exceptions
    – no support for STL

    Reading the forums, the latter 2 are likely to appear some time; goodness only knows if the first restriction will ever disappear…
