I am a bit confuse. I can see the potential of the native sdk but it is full of extentions and I don't know where to start or what to use. If I want to port actual Java code with BB Java UI, what it the equivalent in native sdk? can I use a graphic library to recreate the standard UI controls from the BB Java UI? Is it overkill?
thanks for the help.

There is no UI framework right now in NDK. I suggest to use Air for your app. NDK is good for gaming (direct rendering no standard ui controls) or Air native extensions.

I'm don't make games, but my current application utilizes heavy math so I chose the native SDK. I am using GL ES for basic UI, which is like driving a tank to the grocery store, but it's working out pretty nicely.
I tried Air, but I much prefer the native SDK.

Hi, I was also thinking of using this thank but I am worry about the UI uniformity if we all do that plus Web + Air + Android Java. The device UI will look like a bit of everything with no guide lines, no soul? Just my opinion ...

When will the UI be available?
The Cascades UI (from TAT) will be released in Beta in Nov, with version 1.0 being released in March

How can the 1.0 version of the CUI SDK be after the release of the OS?
Easy! They just do it Just like they released the NDK after the PlayBook was released. It's not uncommon to release dev packages after release of the platform.
The OS release date is probably set to satisfy customers. CUI is obviously not ready for release yet. They can't hold back an OS release for every item they want to add, otherwise it would never get released.
