Hi Mark,

Is Android uses XML for User Interface Language?

How much XML comfort level is required to mess with Android platform, if someone doesn't know XML? Is it mandatory?

What are the other key technologies that Android platform internally using? (for example, java, xml ....??)

Generally yes, though you can construct GUIs using pure Java if you prefer.

You need to be comfortable with angle brackets. Lots and lots of angle brackets.

More seriously, you need comfort with simple XML files, with cutting and pasting from examples to use as starting points

Nothing that an SDK-level developer sees. Under the covers, there is Linux, BlueZ, WebKit, Apache Harmony, and lots of other open source components.
