in general, you would feed the same URL to an android device that you would give to iCal, Outlook, Evolution, etc.

wrt an android device...

Gmail - that's integrated into System => Accounts and you set up a Gmail account and it links Contacts & Calendars as well as mail though you can turn off the 'sync' for those services.

Exchange - that's integrated into 'Corporate Sync' which actually handles basically all other e-mail/calendar/contact accounts
