Mobile applications Windows/Android

Hi

I am a VB.net developer and am confused about which route to take to get into mobile development.
I have built a basic Android app but the code is confusing. I have read that Xamarin are partnering with Microsoft to offer C# development for mobiles.
Surely mobile phones will support Windows in the near future.

I'm looking for a few suggestions on the best route to take for a VB.net developer to develop mobile apps in the coming future.

Thanks

Why should that happen.  To the best of my knowledge android and iOS (apple) have a massive market share with only a few percent for windows phones.  Loads upon loads of apps.  Loads of developers.
For what business reason should companies throw that away just to allow Microsoft more income?

Xamarin is a good start.

But there are also other tools that start to emerge. Check http://www.telerik.com/platform
