I am android dev who is getting interested in BB dev.
My app is consisted of two parts:
1. Java UI written with the standard java code using the android SDK.
2. Shared c/c++ code between all the platforms we use.
3. precompiled shared libs which are used by the common code (openSSL, Curl, LibZ, SQLCipher, etc)
I am getting kind of lost in all of your documentation, and see that you kind of focus on porting Games,
is there any documentation considering apps which follow the design path I described?
Could I convert the native libs (I doubt it but I have to ask)
or should (and how should) I recompile my native libs for the new Blackberry platform?
thanks in advance..

Many open source C++ libs are already ported, but lots of things will compile without modification anyway. See here for some: http://blackberry.github.com/ under the "Native Projects" category.
As for the java layer, I'm not sure what your best path is, as I'm primarily a game developer. You do have the option of Qt (which I use for desktop apps), or Cascades (which is a specialized Qt with a nice visual layout designer) and several other frameworks in various languages.
Hopefully someone else can chime in with a better answer for the Java side of things.
