What is needed to make Android applications?  Will I need special hardware or programming libraries?
Thanks!

afaik you only need the android libs, like NDK and so on, (don't know all here.. now)

but no hardware needed. that's the compiler's job to do the bidding for the internal of the smartphone you wanna port to.

If you want to write GUI applications it's probably best to look at the Lazarus Android Module Wizard. For command line application you would need to get your hands a bit more dirty, but you can find information here.
Regarding hardware: you can either run in an emulator (provided by the Android SDK) or if you have an Android phone you more often than not already have everything you need (except if you need access to features that the version of your phone's OS does not provide yet).
