- Android uses Java syntax and has borrowed some of the libraries as already mentioned.
- Java files on Android are compiled into .class files and then in dalvik executables(.dex)
- Android programs run on Dalvik virtual machine which a customized register based virtual machine written for Android.

Refer Android Faqs for links and read Android is not Java for more...
