Well, itimpi was in the room when that was discussed. 'Plan' and 'soon' are iffy terms.
ATM, there's nothing currently in active development by the Newsbin guys AFAIK, doesn't mean there won't be at some point. Also, who knows who's working on what out there? I do recall seeing someone asking questions about android development, they may be beavering away on it now, for all we know.
