    Hello all, looking forward to being a part of this community. I am a Windows guy, always have been, but am fed up with Windows Mobile. The only thing that makes me nervous about leaving WinMo is synchronizing contacts. Is this an unfound fear? I am a C# developer, who wants to learn Java and give back to the Android project. Any tips for getting started?

    Thanks.
    Stolo

    Welcome to the forums! I am also converting from WinMo. Android does handle contacts, so I don't expect that to be a problem.

    Google has a developer site you'll want to spend some time at and get the Android SDK.
    Android Developers

    We have a developer section here. Developer 101 - Android Forums
    I used the developer 101 guide to install Eclipse, Java, and the Android SDK.

    That should get you up and running and writing your first, "Hello, world" app. :)

    I just saw that they released 2.0 on the developer site (Thanks Carl C!). It mentions an upgrade to contacts specifically:
