Ok, well I'm new here and so I haven't personally heard these things hundreds of times before, and I don't work there now (I did work at RIM in the late 90's back when it was a small, *friendly*, 300-person company) so I wasn't aware that this would be such a sensitive point and I certainly did not intend to be trite or tiresome to you. I apologize for commenting on my confusion and furstration regarding the platform - now that understand that such commentary is unwelcome on this forum I will avoid repeating this mistake.

While I support what peter9477 is saying, I'm not going to jump into that portion of the discussion.
To the OP: If you're really looking for a UI framework to use in the NDK, look for stuff surrounding Qt on the PlayBook. There has been considerable work done to port it, and some of us are using it for our apps. You will need to build and package it yourself, so it does increase the heft of your app, but it is a great option until Cascades ships.

Some awesome tidbits of information right there. I would really take it into consideration if I were you.

Cascades is built on Qt. That's pretty much all you need to know.
Read up on it, and figure out if it'll work for you. I'm willing to bet it will. Once you're done, contact us again, and we'll get you started on how to build it yourself. Or maybe, if we're feeling especially charitable, we'll just give you the pre-built binaries.
