The Android API is obviously a Java API, additionally Android will
only execute DEX bytecode programs, so you would first need a way to
compile Haskell to Java, Java bytecode or DEX directly. A Google
search for "haskell java" turns up at least one good candidate[1], but
if you manage to get that working well, binding the APIs is a rather
trivial task ;)
