 Hey everyone. I'm a super newbie, and when I say super newbie, I mean
this is college level speech to a baby for me .

First of, I know I need to know Java, but what other program languages
would I need to know to jump right in there?

Second, does anyone know if the Android UI will be customizable, like
to your own made ones (like themes for windows).

OK, so i know I'm really new at this, if anyone doesn't understand the
questions let me know, and thanks in advanced for answering to this
post .

You may also be interested in the android-beginners Google Group, then, in
addition to this one.

It's not a programming language, but screen layouts and other resources
are written in XML.

Android has themes and styles, though it is unclear to me to what extent
the framework itself will support an end user "skinning" an arbitrary 
application. If you want to create a "skinnable" application, though, more
power to you, and it shouldn't be significantly more difficult than doing
so in any other run-of-the-mill programming environment.

Balance can be trabsferred to any Mobile sim from a special kind of
sim namely 'recharge sim'. this 'recharge sim' recharges balance to
