    I found this tutorial very usefull when learning NDK :

    Advanced Android: Getting Started with the NDK

    In most cases you only need NDK for some performance sensitive tasks. I used it for OGG decoding.

    No, it has nothing to do with obj-C.

    unless you are extremely proficient at C, then I highly recommend that you steer clear of the NDK. Unless your code is near pristine, it will probably run worse than the java equivalent. C is no walk in the park and isn't something you can just pick up in a couple months.

    Can you answer and if i know PHP/Java is it needed learn python? What Python has to do in Android native development? I plan develop only for mobile in the future...

    Python is not used in androoid development, unless you build it into your C application using the NDK. Even then, python is not recommended for mobile devices, since it is very heavy.
