Use Android microphone on linux

Is it possible to connect an android phone to the computer and use its microphone? I have a Galaxy S2, and I'm wondering if it's possible to do this, and also input stereo audio since the phone has dual microphones.

One of the microphones may be used for noise reduction.

This link may have info about installing pulseaudio. There may be other solutions using a dlna server to stream the sound from the mic.
