Here’s a guy articulating some of what’s been converging in the web application sphere. Do you build a mobile site that looks ok in a desktop browser, or a web site that degrades well on mobile devices? What are the trade-offs? What’s the price?
The fine folks at Mono have introduced a Visual Studio plug-in which allows .Net developers to produce native Android apps via C#.
It’s not cheap, at $499 for a single developer (more for enterprise versions), but if you are already proficient with C#, the savings in ramp-up time may be worth it.
