Are there user experience design guidelines for Android application? I was looking on the android developer site and didn't find any.

Wendy,

What Google offers in their Developer Guide is sparse and dev-centric
(make x menu using this code). In addition to the UI Guide, there's
also a Best Practices section if you look near the bottom of the left
nav, but I didn't find it helpful.
http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/index.html

I've taken to looking at Google's apps (Gmail, Maps, Browser, etc.)
for starters, and then looking at some of the more popular ones like
MySpace, Facebook, Weather Channel, PhoneFlix, the Telegraph, etc.,
the last one taking a decidedly iPhone approach to their design
(which is how I've personally thought to do, as well).

I tried posting on Android's various menus a few weeks ago, but
didn't get any response.

helpful for you if that's something you're specifically working on.
