    UI design for mobile and touch devices can be vastly different than websites for desktop / 960gs sites.

    Having a deep understanding of touch-interface principles, NUI, human-interaction, etc. plays a significant role in UI design for touch devices, along with having a deep understanding of that particular devices native UI and UX paradigms.

    Android is particularly fragmented unlike iOS because you have so many different versions of Android running on so many different devices by so many different manufacturers who all run their native device OS / GUI / crap on top of Android.

    BUT good touch-interface design is good touch interface, and generally translates well to the majority of android / ios devices.

    Not sure I would use a paying client project to get your feet wet with UI / UX design for android / touch devices. Just my two cents.
