Nope. Android is a Java-layer/GUI thing and the OS is Linux...

If systems that run Android can somehow run native apps (using SDL) I don't
see why Rockbox couldn't run there. After all, Rockbox is perhaps one of the
most suitable and most capable music/media player softwares in existance for
tiny/portable devices.

That "If" is a pretty big one though, as I doubt Android as a concept allows
native apps to be part of the UI.

(And yes, my knowledge about Android is very limited so I just may be totally
wrong here.)
