Unlikely.  The Android platform comes from Google which is a competitor for the Windows phone.

I don't know about those.  Mono for Linux doesn't have a very good reputation.

The average business loses $13.5M per year to ineffective training (per 1,000 employees). Keep ahead of the competition and combine in-person quality with online cost and flexibility by training with Linux Academy.

Most development for Android is in Java and you are not likely ton find anything useful in the Java development world from MS not least for Dave's reason above.

A good place to start is using the Eclipse Java IDE with the Android plugins see

This is a good place to start
