Android while using the Linux kernel is basically a giant java virtual machine, Ubuntu is able to natively execute c,c++, etc, code. This means it will be easy to have a high level of source similarity between desktop applications and phone applications, all that would be required in many cases would be recompiling the code for ARM to get the programs to run, issues with having a desktop UI on a phone aside.
