Luis, thank you for your active participation in the discussion. You are only partially right - AppBuilder is the tool that provides for hybrid development only. However, the Telerik Platform does provide the necessary tooling for native development. All its services (except for AppBuilder) provide native SDKs and there is a set of native UI controls for WP8, Android, and iOS.
Terry, thank you for your interest in native development with the Telerik Platform. Currently, it provides services and UI controls that can be used for native development with a setup and a third-party IDE of your choice. This, as you might be guessing, means that not everything can be done from a Windows machine. If you decide to go with native development, you will still need to adhere to required setups for native development for each platform - e.g. a Mac for iOS, Eclipse and the Android SDKs for Android, etc. But you will be able to use the Telerik Platform services, samples, and SDKs for native development.
This complexity is avoided by choosing hybrid over native development. With AppBuilder, for example, you can create, build, and publish an app that will run on WP8, Android, and iOS devices from any system - no strings attached, no system setup limitations. AppBuilder takes care of all the Mac-related tasks - again for hybrid development only.
I would be more than happy to answer more specific questions about native development for a particular device platform with the Telerik Platform. The reason I am not listing all available resources and relevant information for all supported platforms is that it might be a bit too tedious to read in one post.
Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.
