Talk:Cross Platform Mobile Architecture
I think you can't put Xamarin together with the other coss-platform frameworks that use HTML. With Xamarin you create native apps on each platform, insofar it's a mix between pure native code and 'cross platform tools that provide the wrappers over the native APIs' as you say. The code created is fast and can use the specifics of each platform.
A Windows (phone) developer can use the accustomed language (C#) and tools (Visual Studio).
In my opinion a fourth category should be created.

Aady - Thanks for the suggestion
I think what you are suggesting has its rational, but then if I go as per your view then i have to create a 4th category and not only include Xamarin in that but also Apachae Cordova. Because both of them dont have UI as there core code sharing ability but are wrappers for native functionality for middle tire, which can only be shared across platforms.
The reason i kept it bundled is to put under a bigger umbrella of pure Hybrid v.s. Third party approach.
Will think more on that and then update the article.
Thanks for your inputs though.
