Accepted Answer

I use http://code.google.com/p/svg-android/ in my application with satisfaction. All my graphic resources are stored in svg format and rendered on the fly.

Now I'm using a fork of the original project: https://github.com/japgolly/svg-android

Simply include the .java files into your project and use them. This fork bring some improvements to the original code.

Obviously you need to code a little to build up your own SVG viewer. But it's very simple:

SVG svg = new SVGBuilder()
            .readFromResource(getResources(), R.raw.someSvgResource)
            .build();

Drawable drawable = svg.createDrawable();
imageView.setImageDrawable(drawable);

So all you need it's a ImageView component on your activity.

EDIT 2013-06-08:

I suggest to try also this project:

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/136239/Android-ImageView-and-Drawable-with-SVG-Support

that has its own SVG parser.

No native support AFAIK. There's this TinyLine. Haven't actually tried it myself though.
