Android UI patterns

Quite a few times since I switched job and started working with Android and iPhone development I've ended up in discussions about how to handle different kinds of UI interaction on Android. "This is how it's done on iPhone, but what is the standard way of doing it on Android?"

It is often not immediately clear how things should be done either. Android developers have been allowed to design their UIs almost any way they want to, often resulting in less than optimal UIs.

Luckily there are a few sites that tries to remedy this and suggest good ways of solving different UI interaction patterns. One of the most commonly referred to seem to be Android Patterns. Google recently launched a new Design section on their developer site and it's looking promising as well.
