There are two ways to get offline map data onto the device, either as raster data or as vector data. You then need a piece of software that takes the raster tiles and displays them, or loads the vector data and draws it. I suggest that you peruse the Android software list on our Wiki and check out some of the existing programs. Many are open-source so you can inspect the source code. There's a table at the bottom of the page detailing whether the software has bitmap or vector data, and supports offline maps.
