Yeah, there are a bunch of ways to do it. If you don't mind running your own server, setting up SSL and the like you can just use tcatms web interface today. For a native/standalone client more work needs to be done. Goonie in this forum is working on an Android client based on BitCoinJ but I think it'll be at least the end of the summer before anything is working really well.

There are some really nice discussions taking place there.  Many people defdending Bitcoin quite well against the skeptics.

A native client, among other things, is essential for mainstream acceptance.  I'm looking forward to seeing it in the market.

Bitcoin, the original C++ implementation, was first built on Android months ago.  That's as native as you can get.
