Download the Application Developer Kit (ADK).
It contains all you need and a bunch of emulators.

You can integrate it within Eclipse, debug etc..

It's quite cool once you get started.

Almost everything you need is online.

I would definitely (and have) start with the simple "Helloworld" examples and go from there.

No one but yourself through trial and error is going to turn you into an Android developer overnight.

Get an introductory book that teaches at least Android 2.x, such as Android in Action. And read http://android-developers.blogspot.de/. And play with lots of little examples apps.

As previously stated, d/l eclipse and the android sdk. Here http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL34F010EEF9D45FB8 is a great collection of video tutorials to get you started. There are about 200 in all; covering everything from setting up the sdk to advanced android programming techniques.
