If I have a game written using Java 2d, is it possible to port to Android?
Also, is there a general "write games on Android with Java 2d" tutorial anyone might recommend?

I also looked online for a good "game coding on Android" and found only one, which was in pre-order status only.

Have you heard of Libgdx? http://code.google.com/p/libgdx/

It isn't exactly what you might be looking for since it is OpenGL, not Java2D, but it is the easiest way to port a game to Android.

Have heard of it, yeah, but was hoping (perhaps vainly) that I could do an easy port of my 2d work.  I'm starting to sense that is a "no," hehe.

Still interested in a tutorial for Android gaming as well, if anybody knows of a good one.

Android uses OpenGL so you can't use Java2D.
