    It's one of the best presentation i've seen about cross platform mobile developpment down here.
    There is another solution , but it use C++ as a target for Android and IPhone ( so no direct access to UI frameworks on these target , though you can build bridges ) , it is Haxe ( the langage ) + NME ( the C++ framework ). Haxe is a strict typed langage , looks a bit between Java and C++ with c++ macro like features , and a lot of C# like syntactic sugar ).
    But in my opinion it is more for games/stuff that do not require the native UI framework on the different targetted plateforms ( though there are some UI frameworks in Haxe ).
