PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Yesterday, during the most insane launch event in the history of technology, Samsung unveiled its next big flagship, the Galaxy S4. I really couldn't care less about this new phone - another plastic phone that looks exactly like its predecessor - but the flurry of interviews with Samsung executives that followed is far more interesting. With them, Samsung has repositioned Tizen - and if you connect the dots, something interesting is starting to appear.

Except the applications compiled with the NDK.

- Same CPU architecture will be required

- The same dynamic libraries need to be available

- Android does not mimic a Linux distribution and some things just are in different places or done in a different way

NDK-apps or those Dalvik-apps using JNI to access bundled native libraries. There are lots of them.

Theoretical they could also ship a ABI compatible NDK.
