The Android Java dialect is pretty much the only game in town for that. You can use C/C++ (for Android 2.2 and newer), but that's really not what Android is for, and quite a bit harder than using Java; it also doesn't provide access to all the APIs like Java does.

The AndroidFaq should get you started.
