I hope it will get popular, although I don't know.
The think I like about it is that Android is an architecture where you can design a service that's available to multiple apps with minimal integration effort. One thing I hate about my WM5 phone is that there's no Palm-style global search. In Android it should be fairly easy to add one.
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I want to play around programming for mobile devices (just playing, not making a career). The two options are JME and Android. Where to put my bets?

Why don't play both Java ME and Android?

For me, the choice is easy: J2ME, in various forms, is present on at least a billion *physical* mobile phones and other embedded devices. Android can't match that. (At least not yet!)
It's still based on Java technology, which is a bonus for J2ME developers. If we're developing application in the "right" way - with a clear abstraction between the user interface and business logic - then we'll have a good foundation for porting to Android in teh future
