Doesn't take much, all you really need are basic XML and Java skills with some patience. If you'd like some simple sample apps I'd be happy to share some as long as you keep them opensource for others to learn from.

The easiest way is to learn HTML and CSS, which is how web pages are made. Once you can create web pages, then you can put them in an Android app using Eclipse. Get back to us once you've made a few HTML pages linked together and we'll help further.

Default start with a good book

I never saw a platform supported with so many good programming books. I'd recommend getting a good book like "Android for Programmers: An App-Driven Approach" or "Beginning Android Application Development" or "Android Application Development for Dummies." I imagine you have to have some Java first.

And then like someone else suggested, you can go the Javascript/HTML route, but I'm not a giant fan of Javascript myself.

As a beginner myself, programming Android strikes me as a complex undertaking, but that's the challenge.
