No it doesnt because once it finds any Android device around it destroys itself.

It might, but it's definitely not officially supported.  You would more than likely need to write your own android application code to take a shot at getting it working.
 
There's drivers out there that implement a CDC USB-Serial driver for android, which would maybe let you get the USB->Serial interface working.
 
I believe configuring the device is done through a HID class device, so you would probably need to get familiar with USB hosting on android to write some code to configure GPIOs and the like.
