You can now develop software for both iOS and Android

I've just read on the Embarcadero blog that you can take an iOS app developed in Delphi and retarget it to work as an Android app. Delphi for Android is still in beta, but this is a significant step to developing software in a single language and deploying it multiple platforms, and importantly the software run natively.

Because of this Delphi must surely become more popular.
