 > and how then the Application is installed on the device, via web

Step #1: User views a Web page

Step #2: User clicks a link on that Web page that links to that application

Step #3: Browser downloads the application and prompts user to install it

Selling Applikation not on Android Market

 No, market is not involved at all.  The platform has a built-in viewer for
this MIME type that allows the user to directly install the app.

How to align a widget to the bottom of the screen in a FrameLayout?

And a follow-up question.  Is there a tutorial (preferably a video
one) that explains things like Layouts, property values like
wrap_content, fill_parent, center_vertical, center_horizontal, etc...

I feel like these are keys to Android and not thoroughly grokking them
is an impediment to development.

2. "Native code is not supported in the current SDK."

I keep seeing this quote everywhere whenever anybody asks a question
about about C code.

However I don't understand it, nor another quote which is used to
futher explain it "The SDK does not include support for native ARM

I was under the impression it is possible to download the java source
code AND the C source code and build them all.

Is this therefore incorrect, you cannot build the existing C code for
a target platform and therefore make changes to it?

I want to know if it is possible to write some C code in, for example,
the Library layer, and then write some Java code in the Apllication/
Application framework that accesses that C code via JNI.

If this is not possible will it be possible in the future, and if so
at what point?

If its not possible does it just mean its not possible for 3rd party
developers to do but it is possible for device manufacturers to do?
Otherwise I don't understand how a device manufacturer can create a
device containing proprietary functionality if there is no ability to
write and access C code. Is Android forcing manufacturers to write
*everything* in Java?
