I wonder if Android has support for IPv6? I have heard that the phone company I use has support for IPv6 and I have a IPv6 address if I visit http://ipv6.whatismyipv6.net.ipv4.sixxs.org/.

But I can not visit IPv6-only sites like http://ipv6.google.com, why is that? Does Android have support for IPv6?

Android has "partial" support for IPv6, which basically means there's some code for it but it doesn't really work yet. Check this Google thread for more info.

Updating this question to say that as of Android 4.0, IPv6 is fairly well supported. There are still no visual indicators that it is running/working, but devices pick up IPv6 addresses and try to use them by default.

No, as of late 2013, even the newest Android devices still don't support IPv6-only WiFi networks.
