The Cisco Anyconnect will work, but you have to root your device first.

For Android to connect via VPN, you can go the Anyconnect route as mentioned (which may require rooting), or you need to setup the VPN tunnel on the router to accept L2TP as a protocol for VPN connections. Android natively supports this method. I have not personally configured this on a Cisco router, but have done it on the ASA running 8.4.1 code and higher. Another result of this configuration will allow you to use the native vpn client in Windows (2000, XP, Vista, 7) and not require the Cisco client to be installed.

One thing to make a note of on L2TP VPN configuration is that there is no group specified, meaning that the group ends up being the DefaultRAgroup so if you have a need to treat some Android devices different than others based on the user then this may not work out so well.

The following configuration guide from Cisco would be a starting point.
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios-xml/ios/sec_conn_vpnips/configuration/12-4t/l2tp-ipsec-sup-nat-pat-win-clients.html

Or, if you want to do L2TP on an ASA, I have config examples I can share.
