Android is an operating system for mobile devices, based on Linux; software development is mainly done in Java. See the Wikipedia article for more information.


[edit] 2 How to develop Android software in Haskell

Use the JNI to Haskell binding library foreign-jni; demonstration of the use: android-haskell-activity.

Another option is, to use Thrift, as described in the blog article Thrift and Haskell
