I don't think this is for Lazarus-other.
There are 4 things to be considered:
- How to go about Android: custom drawn (i.e. native code), or using the JVM and the Android API.

- apk building (probably the easiest part)
- Remote debugging with the Android emulator.
It is a huge task, I've had many discussions about it :(
