    @Puneet, Bhaskar : what are you guys looking for exactly ? OpenGL provides hardware accelerated rendering. Standard UI stuff can be accelerated without usage of OpenGL.

    More details would be useful. Who knows, I could well propose a talk. I have used OpenGL since 1999, am glad to see it still being relevant, and well - I hope many old tricks still apply in the handheld world !

      @shree It would be interesting giving a talk + interactive demo of apis available in opengl es 2.x. Something like for getting started with opengl apis so that we can easily put forward our animation thoughts into code.

        @bhaskar : thanks for that input. ES 2.x is somewhat more complicated to explain to beginners (from an OpenGL perspective); I'll see what I can squeeze in.

    @all: I am sorry for not following up the proposal. I have not worked on OpenGL , although I am very interested in learning it, hence the proposal. Now that Mr. Shree Kumar has proposed to take up this topic I request everyone who voted +1 to this topic to vote +1 his proposal "OpenGL in Android" ( http://funnel.hasgeek.com/droidcon/88-opengl-in-android ). I will contact the organizers and get this post deleted.

      @Punit : There are currently two talk proposals on this. One is from me, and another from Tamilharasan Chandran (http://funnel.hasgeek.com/droidcon/94-introduction-to-opengl-in-android). I have a couple of other talk proposals as well, and I would be more than happy to see Tamil do the talk.
