Hi,

Am a web developer and interested in developing smart phone applications.

I would like to know how steep is the learning curve for developing on android vs something for iphone.

I know Python/Java/HML/CSS/JS/XML.

One more questions, is it true that a greater percentage of people on iphone are likely to try/buy your app rather that on android ?

I know, that these questions are more of platform benefit rather than specific android questions.

Would be great if I can get some insight on this.

You say you know Java, JS and XML. IMO, transitioning to Android development will be easier for you. For iPhone development, you will need to learn Objective C and familiarize/verse yourself with Xcode.

You might find the following discussions helpful:
1. Android or iPhone
2. Thinking to switch over to Android from J2EE
3. Which Java to learn?

Please avoid saying "n00b" or similar.
