I have a Droid2 with the "WiFi Analyzer" freebie app by Kevin Yuan. 
Compared to dragging around a real analyzer, it's helpful in the field.

Certainly haven't gone to any great lengths to "find" more, or
purposefully use my phone as a test device, but at least that one is
handy (was discovered by our WiFi guy) and the price is right.
