UX/UI Design constraints for Android platform?

Hello all !

We at Desolve are planning to design a new Android home screen experience.

We believe that the future of home screens will no more be 'idle' but dynamic and fluid like the Vodafone 360, Microsoft Kin. Our vision for the interface we would like to design is in the direction of the Microsoft Kin (with our own twist to it) which will make the home screen come alive.

Android mockup template in Fireworks


I found the IXDA discussion on templates for Android design, and was
working on a Fireworks version at the time.

I've just posted the mockup template for Fireworks on our UNITiD

Hope you find it useful!

Android wireframe stencil


I am wondering if anybody has an Android Wireframe stencil they can share, preferably in Illustrator or Visio, Omnigraffle works too I guess.

I looked on the archives and didn't see any threads on this topic.

HTC hero - what are your thoughts?

Did i miss a discussion on this one ? Or it hasnt been discussed here
as yet (shockingly) Anyway
so HTC Sense, is what the new interface is called of HTC hero which
is the third Android powered device presented on the market but is
the first huge customization of Android.
It has couple of interesting features. HTC envisions the relations
between the person and his interactions with other people.

Designing G1 Menus

Note: I did an IxDA search for "G1" and found only 3 results, none
of which really addressed the UI on an element level. I'm hoping a
few folks have had a chance to play around with it by now!

I'm working on an existing application which suffers a bit from some
inconsistencies in it's design. It was partially modeled after
Google's existing apps at the time and made to be contextual to
whatever page the user was on.

G1 Android - case study in inconsistency

Sorry if I'm rehashing a conversation here, but to my surprise I
haven't seen any G1 debates coming up here from the release this week.

So I'll start....Oh my...what a mess. I really enjoy gizmodo's write up....

The interface is really disconnected, inconsistent, and almost has an
amateur quality to it.
