There are a bunch of android versions of this game with asynchronous multiplay:

SCRABBLE Free: the official scrabble app.
Words With Friends: one of the more popular.
Wordfeud: my favorite, nickname j13u11fr09. Feel free to start a game with me, though I can't gaurantee I'll always be able to take my turn quickly and you'll probably kick my butt...

There are a ton of others, but these seem to be the biggest.

Uniwar has asynchronous multiplayer as well as single player against an AI. I have not tried it though... any opinions from those who have?

Market link: UniWar ($4.99 as of 10/18/2011)

This is on the iPhone asynchronous list, and it is available on Android now. The reviews are somewhat poor for the port, and I'm not certain that it does have asynchronous (can anyone confirm?)

Another from the iPhone list. This one is on the Amazon store for 99 cents. Again, not 100% certain it also has asynchronous play on Android.

anDGS seems to work well. As far as I can tell, you have to log into the Dragon Go Server to start a game, but you can play moves on your phone.

Droidippy is a good implementation of Diplomacy for android phones with a web interface also available. Long press and choose move, support, hold, or convoy. Messages to players and group chat as well as anonymous chat. Not a lot of variants but well worth the trouble and easy to use with pinch to zoom.

Just saw this released to the market (via r/android): Partía (free).

It bills itself as a place to play games asynchronously against others. So far it has both Backgammon and Reversi, with plans for others to be added.
