Android is in pre-alpha and the owners are open to suggestions and changes from the developer community. If sufficient numbers of people are in favor of speex, they will listen - but now is the time. Later on, changes will be much harder to make as devices are due in July. So please get on the Android developer groups and encourage them to implement speex - and show them how.

Even if they included Speex support, the Android media API is very 
limited, as it can only access audio from a file or an HTTP URL. I 
raised a bug against Android that the JavaSound API is not working (it 
is documented though), but it was closed with the explanation that the 
JavaSound API will not be implemented. JavaSound would have offered a 
possibility to play software-synthesized PCM data, e.g. the output from 
JSpeex and access recorded PCM data for speex encoding, but this option 
seem to be "dead" now.
