I'm not in a position to estimate the counts of Android devices that 
have an FPU vs those that don't, or suggest that all relevant of them have.

But AFAIK, when building the Linux Kernel for AR; chips without FPU, you 
can include an FPU simulation. With that the user software (other than 
slower execution) does not notice that there is no FPU. As this only 
costs some hundred bytes of memory, I do suppose that the Kernel for 
Android devices might be done in that ways.
