Hello ... would we able to make web service or API calls to external services using the android platform? We are trying to port a web conferencing app over to Android.
Thanks

That's easy - all the regular Java socket and URL calls are there. The trick is to not block the foreground UI thread. Calling a web service is covered in chapter 7 of my book and in the free sample code here: http://www.pragprog.com/titles/eband/source_code (Translate example)
