how to serve up an android hybrid/ios mobile app

 I'm new to mobile development, so please excuse any novice quesitons.  I've gone thru some of the online training modules and have a question on actually deploying the app.  If I build my VF pages for mobile, how does the application get installed on the phone and how do the pages get served up to the applicaiton on the phone?  Since the VF pages reside inside of Salesforce, I'm not clear on how those pages get servered to the mobile phone and how the application gets installed on the phone.  I know this is basic stuff, but again, I'm new to mobile development.  I downloaded the SalesforceMobileSDK for Android and setup one of the sample projects in Eclipse.  I have run the application and it starts to run using the emulator in Eclipse that I setup.  However, all the sample code is local on my machine, so if it is within the Salesforce environment, how is it served and deployed to the phone?
