Yes, it can work on any Linux-based device and on ARM CPUs. It has been tested on Windows & Linux using an ES emulator. It has also been tested on a Tegra 2 based (Linux+ARM) handheld console, that never made it to market. Actually, that console was the reason an ES version was developed in the first place.

The only inconvenience is that we don't provide an ES/ARM build. People interested need to checkout LWJGL and build on their own.
