Even if KSD or now FireMonkey supports ARM Linux this does not mean 
anything for Android. While Android does support native Linux 
applications it does not have a X server. Currently the only possibility 
for this is to run a X server through a VNC viewer and thus you can not 
reproduce the usual feel of an Android application. For that you'd need 
to write a Java bridge.
