The Android counterparts are Android Basics: User Interface, which is considered a 2-week course at beginner level and Developing Android Apps which requires approximately 60 hours in which students build a cloud-connected Android App and is the first course in the Android Developer Nanodegree.

The top 10% of students on each of these four 3-month programs will be awarded scholarships to the appropriate Nanodegree program:

Beginner Front End Web Developer     Android Basics
Intermediate   Mobile Web Specialist   Android Developer

Britten notes:
