Is there any way to read data from android device connected in debug mode?
I want to read the same data, that shows in Eclipse's LogCat.

In order to do this, you need adb command. You should be able to use exactly the same way as on normal desktop Linux. The only thing that may be needed is a udev rule that may be created like this (note that idVendor may be different for your device):

sudo 'echo SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"' >  /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules

Now, if you connect your device to the system, you should be able to run:

adb logcat -v time

The only problem is getting adb command working on ARM. And unfortunately this is not that trivial. You can read about how to do this (and download a binary that should work) on XDA forum.
