It helps fast development and debugging.
What other advice do I have?For strictly native applications, use Android. For an application easily deployable on any platform like iOS or Windows, look for the PhoneGap solution.

Best in class open source mobile app development platform
What other advice do I have?A very good mobile app development platform with support for developing on various platforms like Wiindows, Linux, Mac, etc. Very good support for integrating 3rd party libraries. Development of apps based on camera, location, maps, etc. requires an actual device to test the app and the supplied emulator cannot be relied on completely.

Open source, flexible, and Java is a great combo, but the end the application is what matters and the application rendering is a bit slower in my personal experiences.
What other advice do I have?Google provides a comprehensive guide to ease the development of apps in Android. Due to the support from Google, and the fact that the Android app development can be undertaken anywhere, it's open source platform has contributed toward the immense success of Android. Although iPhone offers a lot of development tools, the freedom offered by Android is virtually unmatched. Almost the entire source code of Android is available to the developers, and they can manipulate it as they wish.

Google has excellent platform support for their developers.
What other advice do I have?I give the Android SDK 1 star higher than the iOS SDK for its incredible multi-platform support. You can develop on Mac, Windows, and Linux. This is mostly because of the Java based code that the apps are coded in, but it is what it is.
