Default Good learning resources?

Howdy,

Looking for any valuable learning resources for the Android platform. Tutorials, articles, and especially any videos. Anything you find of value and would highly recommend, I'm interested in seeing.

I have little Android experience but much coding experience. As a result, newbie resources would be nice, but most definitely do not let that hinder you from posting more advanced stuff. I will understand it, at LEAST in theory.

Thanks!

Not sure if this is a learning resource so much as a good reference for development:

as far as books the best one i've seen in the many android books out there is "Sams Teach Yourself Android Application Development in 24 Hours" Its current teaching (2.1) not the 1.xx like the others and also understands you might not know Jack about java! Also if you wish to pick up java just to have a better support/understanding get "Sams Teach Yourself Android Java in 24 Hours"

What about books on Android Internals? As in how the platform framework was idealized and coded?

I have been reading the book Android Wireless Application Development. It seems to be a pretty comprehensive overview of Android. It also comes with a cd that includes sample code and several demo applications. I wouldn't say its the end all be all, but it is a starting point.

I'm very new to Android myself so that's my $.02
