The fundamental problem with the android platform is, as you noticed,
the wifi card and drivers.

If you have a rooted device which supports USB host (I don't know
anyhting about this particular device) then you can probably do
something, yes. Many android devices do not support host.

In theory there's nothing keeping you from running kismet on, say, a
nexus 1 with the debian usbhost build and an external card, but it will
kill the battery mighty quick, and probably require an external power
pack for the USB card since most devices don't provide +5v.
