Best Resource for Android Programming

What is currently the best resource, printed or posted, for learning how to program and develop for the Android OS with very very limited initial knowledge? I found Google's tutorials lacking.

I too found Googles info to provide enough information to newer programmers.

I know that your probably looking for free information, but I found this book: http://www.amazon.com/Hello-Android-Introducing-Development-Programmers/dp/1934356492%3FSubscriptionId%3D14H876SFAKFS0EHBYQ02%26tag%3Dmysuperhub-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3D1934356492

You might also check out these to sites.

The first is based on Googles info, but I found some information that would help me out.
1. http://www.talkandroid.com/google-android-application-guide/

The second is a tutorial to get you started.
2. http://mobiforge.com/developing/story/getting-started-with-android-development

The third is for .NET developers jumping into Java
3. http://www.caffeinedi.com/2010/07/03/beginning-google-android-development-for-net-developers-part-1/

The final one is a compilation of Eclipse and Java video tutorials. Start by selecting "View Lesson 1" link on the left.
4. http://eclipsetutorial.sourceforge.net/totalbeginner.html

I hope this helps,

Yup that helps. Made me realize, it would probably be a good idea to brush up extensively on some Java. Probably going to hold off on buying development books since a new Android version comes out ever 4 months or so.

Thanks!
