Bovine excrement, but I admit only partially, depending on version:
There are X servers running on Android and there is qt running on Android.
Except you need at least 2.3 or maybe a high 2.2.x, never had those.

I have qt code running myself on an very cheap Android 2.3 tab from a 
toyshop and it works a charm.
I also have Mono/.net code running on it.
Currently both under C and C#. The Freepascal examples run a bit strange 
(maybe ARM EABIv7 for Cortex 8, still palyimng with it)
You definitely only need JNI before Android 2.3. So that part is correct.
