The current release of SQL Anywhere 12 only supports synchronization over HTTP or HTTPS in Android clients. For Windows Mobile and iOS clients there's also the option of synchronization over TCP. Is there any plans to make this option available for Android??

Thanks for the suggestion. UltraLite for Android is based on the UltraLiteJ API which was originally designed for J2ME and BlackBerry smartphones. These platforms had very poor TCP support (in many cases it was due to restrictions imposed by many carriers) therefore it was felt that HTTP and HTTPS would suffice. Things have changed in the last few years so perhaps it is time to revisit this.
I will forward your suggestion to product management. It would help if you could provide a business case for it. You can email me at myfirstname.mylastname at sybase.com.
