Here is a quick, brief 10,000ft overview/observations on Android from a Swing developers point of view. Firstly if your coming to Android from Swing you are approaching it with a big advantage to J2EE developers. Now I realise Android doesn't actually have the AWT/Swing API's but that doesn't matter as the general front end/event driven mechanism in it is so close to Swing that you will find it easy. Now Android does rely a lot more on XML defs than Swing ever did and that took me a while to get my head around and realise how powerful a feature it actually it is if used correctly.
