That is wonderful to hear.  Blender is actually primarily C with some libraries and the game engine in C++, and the interface and scripting in python.

As mentioned by another respondent, a google summer of code participant has ported the game engine of blender to android which includes most of the critical library dependencies.  Another student is working on multitouch support, and a third student is updating our opengl calls so that the blender core will only use modern opengl calls.  All of these should make the porting effort feasible, but user interface work will be needed to make it useable.
