http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_with_Virtualization_Extensions is the
starting point for all Xen on ARM stuff. There is a list of supported
hardware there, but note that it doesn't include Nexus phones etc,
although of course you could port it if you wanted.

Arndale is probably the most mobile-like platform there (being a dev
board for the Exynos processor used in many phones), my personal
recommendation for running Xen on ARM is a sunxi platform, e.g.
cubietruck except in your case I'm not aware of anyone having looked
into the graphics side of things, which is probably a blocker for you.

You may be interested in http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_%28PV%29,
which has been run on tablets/phones, but note that it is not developed
by anyone on this list and is mostly abandonware as far as the open
source code goes.
