I don't think you'd want to compile full PLT Scheme to a mobile
device.  Some aspects of Scheme, such as the full numeric tower and
eval, aren't really appropriate or necessary for a device with very
limited memory.  As Matthias said a sensible route would be to create
a DSL that compiles to Java bytecode.
