mobile applications with zend studio

Zend studio 10 claims you can build mobile applications(ios, andriod, windows) on it but these apps are usually built using languages other than php. how does zend studio achieve this? is this true? or just a gimmick?

In Zend Studio you can create a web based mobile applications that communicate with a PHP backend (web services). Client side is written in HTML and JavaScript (using jQuery mobile) and then automatically transformed to native apps via PhoneGap framework. Thanks to PhoneGap API, you can access native functionality of mobile device like camera, storage, accelerometer...

If you want to build for iOS you still need Mac OS X.
