Although I don't have an Android phone, I believe that a WordPress
application for that platform should be produced.

The trick you should be prepared to pull off are:

   1. Keeping the feature sets similar between the iPhone and Android
   2. Ensuring that bugs and features rolled out in one application are
   quickly followed by the other
