Where is Android mounted? It's clearly mounted somewhere because I can see it from Nautilus. The mount point is called mtp://[usb:001,072], where is this?

When using Nautilus (Gnome) it mounts it for you using GVFS. gvfs is a "virtual filesystem where mounts run as separate processes which you talk to via D-Bus" so, you have to use D-Bus. However there is a package gvfs-fuse that (after you install it) will make it available at /run/user/<uid>/gvfs/ (or /var/run/user/<uid>/gvfs).
This is not the only way, though. KDE has KIO. Another one is jmtpfs that works from the command line for mounting Android to a given folder.
