The reason you don't see it discussed here often is because it's in the FAQ.

Some of the technical issues are listed here:

Feel free to discuss a port of Chirp to Android, but realize that none
of the GUI code is compatible. The underlying radio clone code should
run fine on Android devices with serial ports. If you are an Android
developer with some free time, you could make a few people happy by
rewriting Chirp for Android.
