I've been trying to find a way to make talking about Android a lightning 
talk, but it really doesn't seem like anyone has ported Perl to it yet :(

(To some degree, running Perl on the bare-metal of the device would be 
missing the point of Android, so it's more likely that a perl-on-dalvik 
implementation would be useful).

I've been watching Ben Evan's work on porting perl to the jvm with 
interest though. If that succeeded, we'd have perl on android for free 
too. However it does seem to have stalled in the last couple of months.
