          Hi,

          1) Import android.smartcard libraries,

          2) Try to make a connection :
          ISmartcardConnectionListener connectionListener = new ISmartcardConnectionListener()
          3) create an instance of smartcardclient:
          smartcard = new SmartcardClient(this, connectionListener);
          4) get the list of readers :
          String[] readers = smartcard.getReaders();
          you can check if a specific reader is connected or nor with
          smartcard.isCardPresent(readers [0]);
          5) create a card channel and select your applet:
          cardChannel = smartcard.openLogicalChannel(cardReader, APPLET_AID);
          
          ICardChannel cardChannel = null;
          cardChannel = smartcard.openLogicalChannel(cardReader, APPLET_AID);
          6) you can send and receive APDUs with this line of code:
          byte[] response Apdu = cardChannel.transmit(commandApdu);
          Regards,

            If you have access to the Android build (using AOSP) then you might also be able to use the nfc_extras.jar which provides and API for sending APDUs to the secure element in a device. There is also SEEK for Android that you might be able to use.

            As you can image though, access to the secure element is usually locked down (for security reasons) so you may need access to the Android build for this to work (or have a rooted phone).
