Here are 2 videos I made of how I currently use my G1. I show off some apps and how they work.
I am especially happy with finally finding a descent Jabber client with conference support. (specifically: xep-0045 support)
The app is called jabiru and is quite simple, fast, nice and compact. You can find it on the Android marketplace.
With this I can now finally chat in my regular chatroom, the wowcast chat on Bindpoint, which is not actually a Jabber chat at all, but is exposed as such. (I am hoping that they will also expose their chat system as IRC at some point).
