Though I did not program any application in Android, the platform should not be a problem because almost all Android apps are written in Java and are running inside the Dalvik VM.

Now, the apps written using the NDK yes, must be ported to the new platforms to run, but I really suspect the vast majority of apps written for Android do not use it; and I also suspect that people that writes using the NDK, uses it to make their apps easily portable between Android and iOS, and in that case, their native code is already portable.
