wait aren't virtually all android apps written in java?



Android uses Dalvik, not JVM. Language is Java, standard library is mostly Java-compatible, but runtime is different. And I'm talking about server loads, I don't think that Dalvik is very good for those tasks (but I might be wrong, it's an interesting question).
