While the web is for real in enterprise mobility/B2B market, native still dominates the consumer/B2C market. In fact, many people start to realize that web may never have surpass or even close to native in terms of the amount of applications. However, I don't see much of any native supports in this tech preview. I think your target is not B2B only, so it will be great to see you add more native supports in the final release.
I suggest you take a look at the MEAP products other vendors are offering. The good performers like Sybase, Antenna, Kony all provides cross-compile capabilities to convert codes into native. That's how they achieve "write once run anywhere" with best user experience. Some of those products based on web technologies can also convert their codes into native codes. It's really hard to succeed in mobile market without investing enough in native today. It's not perfect, but you just have to do that, because web/hybrid also have their problems.

We think that Native, Web and Hybrid Mobile technologies are all critical elements of the rapidly maturing Mobile space, and we readily admit that the content included in the initial collection of technologies included in the IBM Mobile Technology Preview has a Web and Hybrid slant. We can't make any promises for a tech preview, but its reasonable to conclude that we will see more Native content in future drops. We hope you'll continue to review and provide feedback on the content and direction as things continue.
See Greg's introductory blog post at https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/ibmmobile/entry/introducing_the_ibm_mobile_technology_preview?lang=en for a more detailed explanation of our view of the Mobile landscape, where we are today and where we're headed with http://ibm.co/ibmmobile. Please feel free to comment in the blog or here in the forums.
