Yes, the android API is based on processing which is based on JRE. However,
a) there is a python implementation and b) you can use pyserial.
My idea is that you could make the data available through the logic bricks
-- ie, you set a sensor that gets triggered for a certain input value.
Also, there'd be an API so that you can access the incoming serial data via
a python module.
Hope that clears your questions up.
