Android is fundamentally a really hacked-upon Linux kernel with some GNU
userland and the Android stack.  There's no reason to think GnuPG
couldn't be ported fairly easily, especially if you're willing to reduce
the feature set as far as possible.  This is not the same thing as
saying it would be wise: there are some good reasons to be skeptical of
OpenPGP on mobile devices.
