PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jolla, the mobile startup staffed by former Nokia executives who want to keep the company's MeeGo software alive, says it will use existing technology to bring in apps from other platforms - including Android. Will it be enough to boost the plucky company's fortunes?" It won't be a saving grace, but it's a nice bonus. There's something about these guys that fills me with confidence. Can't wait for their devices to hit the market.

I guess their point it to compensate for some applications which are still missing in the native form. Same as for example Wine is useful to run something that you can't run natively. It doesn't discourage creating more native applications, since ACL and etc. is not as good as native code, and it's just a fallback when there are no other options.
