Using Spring is out of the topic of this book, it's about Front end Mobile Web apps but offcourse your backend server can use Spring. For Native apps I know there is Spring Android project, you could this.
However, it's focus is not to provide a Spring MVC/Webflow framework for the Android platform. What it does do is provide tools to connect your Android application to REST-based services on the server side (RestTemplate et al). In addition, the Spring Mobile distribution provides tools that you can include within Spring MVC on the server-side to detect that a mobile device is accessing your web-based application and allows you to redirect that user to a mobile-optimized website.

Thanks, that makes scene. I was more interested in integration points with spring (soap, rest) web-services rather than using spring MVC in client app.
