I am and experienced Java developer and am interested in developing Android apps.

I saw this book recommended in some posts here in the forum: Android Study Guide for Pro Android 3
Are there any others that anyone could recommend?
Thanks!

I have just done some recommendations for learning Android on my blog here: http://automateddeveloper.blogspot.com/2011/06/getting-started-best-books-to-learn.html


But personally, I quite liked Hello, Android as a book to get started!

Brady, I'd recommend the official android developer site. It's the best tutorial out there. Yes sometimes you may get lost, but I feel it's the best.
