Great first Android Dev Austin meeting

We had a great first Android Dev Austin meeting, packed with developers and even a couple of product folks. Thanks to all who attended. It was a very interactive meeting where we discussed a lot of things on Android, from fragmentation to distribution, business models, APIs, local vs. web apps, and other.

You can see some photos of the meeting courtesy of Clark Wimberly (AndroidandMe):
