Since Android app development is a much more technical topic, and
would benefit far more from our meeting setup (everyone seated
facing a big video projection), I'd rather have that separate from
an end-user roundtable, honestly.

Oddly, a friend of mine has a Droid and went to show me some cool
keyboard that (came with it? he downloaded? I forget).  It looks
like it works a lot like Swype, but it was from a totally different
developer. :)

Swype is handy when I don't feel like rotating and pulling out
the keyboard.  Doing coupla-word-long TXT replies, for example.
For anything else, I need the keyboard.

Except... grrr... I've found NO way of typing <, >, {, } or | using
the hardware keyboard, which makes shell and PHP scripting... annoying.
