Just read the FAQ for Android. Here is the most important part:
Can I write code for Android using C/C++?
No. Android applications are written using the Java programming language.
So no easy game ports for this platform. Additionally the language will eat up so many cycles that good looking 3D game do not make much sense. No business case for games then ... maybe they will start thinking about it :-) ... using Java also looks quite unprofessional to me but I heard other phone companies are doing this as well to protect their margin and keep control over the device.
