Win the book "Learn Java for Android" in the book promotion ;-). It covers the Java you need for programming Android which is pretty much basic Java. A strong fundamental knowledge helps a lot.

That's pretty much it, apart from the usual processual and tool knowledge (sure, you need to know how to do OOA/D/P, handle XML and Eclipse...).

It helps if you need it. Some more chances to get self-employed or at least earn a dollar or two, due to a market and billing system you can utilise.

On the 31st of January, Google Android won Apple as the top mobile platform. So learning to code for Android has good prospects. :thumbup:

Sun's/Oracle's Java ME has been around for a long time, even though it doesn't have much traction on modern smartphones. I'd guess that it's still more widely distributed than Android, though, due to the large number of non-smartphones still in use.

Objective-C, which is as unusual for C programmers as for Java programmers.

Facebook just released it's J2ME app, seems to be of some importance still. Blackberry and Symbian devices can still be programmed with J2ME, I think.
