Comment Re:Battery life might be a concern. (Score 1) 328

I've tried using my G1 as just a GPS, and yeah, battery life sucked. If you want a GPS for hunting and camping (I was tooling around in places where I could easily charge this up), just buy a real GPS unit, it's probably going to be on par for cost and as others have noted, use standard batteries, which is a major thing if you're out in the wild.

Android apps are Java, and allow for JNI. So the answer is that yes, non-JNI using apps work just fine. In the future, JNI using apps could work so long as native libraries are provided for all hardware architectures that are supported (today there's a hardcoded armeabi reference in the loader).
