I have a G1, which also runs Android. (I also work at a shop that does
smartphone programming.) Palm is a very different programming environment
from Windows Mobile, and both are quite different from Android, although
both WM and Android are Java based, they won't run each other's programs.

Not yet. None that I'm aware of, anyway. It's on my list, but someone
else will probably get to it before I do. That's what usually happens.
