    Hi,

    I've been trying to get started learning Android for several months now and keep getting pulled back into the Microsoft's .Net world to deal with crises (real and imagined). I'm a consultant and I'm looking at the end of an assignment coming in a couple weeks and the prospect of at least several weeks of bench time. Perfect!

    BTW: People tell me that, with my background, I should focus on the Windows 7 Phone. Is it just me or is that the ugliest interface ever?

    So, one thing that I'm a little unsure of is the divide between Java, JavaScript and now Flash (in Froyo, right?) as being the platform of choice for app development. My orginal assumption was that Java was the way to go but I keep hearing references to the other two. If you go the JavaScript/Flash path, are there options besides being hosted in the browser? And are browser-based route, are apps (semi-)compatible with iPhone, Blackberry, etc.? I can't picture accessing the hardware features from the browser. Any adivice will be greatly appreciated.

    Willie D.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    My guess is that Java would be the primary development language but then again I'm not an Android developer. Try posting your question to the Android Developers for more info...
