you can start from here http://d.android.com/guide/basics/what-is-android.html, if you are really interested in Android development.

The author may provide more guidance.

Initially, you may want to invest in an introductory book on Android development. There is a lot of online information available but much of it assumes you already know what all the pieces are and generally how they fit together. It will make a lot more sense to you once you go through a well-written book.

After that, I suggest working through the online tutorials, especially:

http://d.android.com/guide/tutorials/hello-world.html
http://d.android.com/guide/tutorials/notepad/index.html

The online documentation from Google is great if you know exactly what you're looking for. And people are always posting great tutorials and how-to articles on http://www.planetandroid.com .

Hi Ed,
Can your book be used by a novice like me?

Sure, though looking at your past posts you don't strike me as a novice.

From the preface:

Who Should Read This Book?
The only requirement is a basic understanding of programming in Java
or a similar object-oriented language (C# will do in a pinch). You don’t
need any prior experience developing software for mobile devices. In
fact, if you do, it’s probably best if you try to forget that experience.
Android is so different that it’s good to start with an open mind.
