As you saw, MobileOrg is limited to iPhone/iPod Touch.  There has been some 
stirring to look into an Android version, but nothing has come of that yet.

Other folks are running Emacs either natively on their phones or ssh'ing into a 
remote host and running Emacs.  I can't speak to the effectiveness of this, 
having not tried it myself, but the recent speed keys support in Org has 
apparently made this a bit more usable.

This code is meant to be reused when an app similar to MobileOrg is built on 
another platform.  The new author can reuse the Emacs integration code 
(org-mobile-*) that Carsten wrote.  His goal was to write that once, not once 
per mobile application that springs up.

Hope this helps,
