Hmm. It does sound like a fair bit of work. Essentially, I like the idea of
developing my own mobile apps. I'd want them to be available to both
Android, OpenMoko and Qtopia phones. This pretty much necessitates targeting
Android, since it is the most restrictive platform, and porting to the
others. If I'm developing my own Android apps, would there be much I could
do to improve the portability of them to OpenMoko/Qtopia/etc, in order to
reduce the number of steps required to port them?

Thanks, and sorry that I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to open mobile
platforms :)
