Counting the number of mobile phones in communication range with an Android phone

It is clearly possible to count how many WiFi devices are in the communication range using a computer with a wireless card. The idea apparently is to sniff WiFi probe requests coming from the WiFi devices, including smartphones with WiFi enabled.

Here comes my question – is it possible to do the same using an Android smartphone instead of a PC? That is to say, can a phone WiFi be put in such a mode that it is able to count not only the access points in the range, but other devices as well?
