I sure would love to see Android supported by openJDK and IOS. Seems like a big opportunity for the group and Oracle. If we could port our apps quickly to it would be really good for everyone. With the CPU and memory capabilities increasing and Android being linux based already seems like they are ready for "Real" apps.

The more apps that are created for IOS (and Android), the more chances a
company or a community will improve the underlying platform. That's a
simple rule in the IT industry.
Keep pushing.
