Future scope for a mobile Developer

I’ve started my career as a Software Tester but after 3 years I realized, it didn’t give me the so called job satisfaction and I made a brave decision to jump into software development arena. Finally I have become an Android Mobile developer and completed 1 year of experience.

I love my job and I love every bit of it, but going forward I’m wondering what the scope for mobile developers is?? Developers who work with C# or Java have their larger scope and they can become architect etc in future. But as a mobile developer what can I achieve.. Mobile development architect is not something practical because mobile projects are small and it does not require much technical ability like j2ee project needs.

Should I change my career track to Java or j2ee or something from mobile?? Any advice is appreciated.

The natural progressive path in Java is to learn core Java and then move on to JEE (i.e enterprise Java).

Thanks arulk pillai for the prompt reply. I've done SCJP and familiar with core java as I"m doing Andriod dev in Java. But my problem is should I continue to be a mobile dev or should I think about being a Java / J2EE dev.

It is your choice. While learning mobile you could teach yourself JEE development or do the vice-versa via self-taught projects and open source contribution. Pick which ever really interests you.
