However, Chess for Android can import third party UCI or XBoard engines, either for direct play, analysis, or even tournaments.
For more information see:
* UCI and XBoard Engines for Android
* UCI and XBoard Protocols for Android
* Chess for Android Manual
Or to get an idea of the strength of some of these engines:
* recent tournament

both of that 3 programs runs natively on an Android platform mobiles?
Simply download Chess for Android to your device, then download your favorite UCI or XBoard engine compiled for that device, and you can play it, as shown in the screenshot below.
1 Critter 1.2 32-bit * 11.5-8.5 9.5-10.5 15.0-5.0 11.5-8.5 47.5/80
2 Stockfish 2.1.1 JA 8.5-11.5 * 13.0-7.0 9.5-10.5 11.0-9.0 42.0/80 1651.50
3 Komodo32 2.03 AB 10.5-9.5 7.0-13.0 * 13.0-7.0 11.5-8.5 42.0/80 1632.25
If you are interested in more games, different time settings, or opening suites, you could setup a tournament yourself using Chess for Android between just these engines. Simply long press notation window, then UCI and XBoard, then Engine Tournament and you can import any opening suite are you interested in.
More details can be found in this manual.
There is no full inter-device tournament option yet (engines playing on Android device playing engines on your Intel desktop, for example), although I recently made connecting Chess for Android as client to any remote chess server more easy. See this blog posting for details.
