    I just recently decided to try and start developing Android applications and was wondering if anyone could tell me whether I should start by learning JavaScript or start by reading the Dev Guide on developer.android.com?

    Definately read the Dev guide. It contains lots of helpful information that are specific to android development. Native apps are developed in Java, not javascript. It would be a good idea to learn at least the basics of java.

    First off, javascript is NOT java. The latter is what the android SDK is based off of. If you learned javascript with no previous programming experience, you would be completely lost when working with Android. In order to get started, I highly recommend reading up on the object-oriented programming paradigm, and learning your way around java at the same time. After that, it's just a matter of working through the dev guid and familiarizing yourself with Android's APIs.
