1) Tkinter is just a thin wrapper around the Tcl/Tk UI toolkit.
If Tk isn't on Android then Tkinter will not be.
And Tk isn't. (It may be at some point but not yet)
2) Tk, and so Tkinter, is based on a windowed environment.
Android is not. It would be a major task to try to rethink
how all the widgets in Tk would look and work under Android.
The good news is that there is a UI toolkit for Python
on Android (as well as Windows, Linux, MacOS and iOS)
called Kivy which is apparently quite powerful
and easy to learn. Take a look at kivy.org.
I've never used it but have heard positive reports.
