actually android is linux based if i'm correct. some vb6 apps may work if you manage to install wine..
but you would have to test every feature of your program to see if it works so, maybe java or c based programs are the way to go..

Are you speaking from experience? From what I have read, Wine won't work on Android since Android doesn't rely on the X-Window system. Also, Android currently runs on ARM processors and windows binaries would be x86.

You can also develop them in C++ using JNI but it is painful, especially on a Windows system.  It is geared more towards a Linux development environment.
