    That isn't really a valid question.

    First of all, it's going to depend entirely on you: what you prefer, where you want to live, the type of job you want, etc.

    Secondly, we can't predict the future. Maybe in 5 years Java will blow up in popularity, or maybe Android will, or maybe neither will.

    Thirdly, programming languages, platforms, and styles are tools. If you were going into construction, you wouldn't ask whether you should learn to use a hammer OR a saw. The answer is you should learn them both and use whatever the job requires.

    That being said, Android uses Java, so I don't know why you see it as an either-or relationship. Android actually requires some Java knowledge, so it's not like you can *just* learn Android anyway.

    I think, Java is better for career and is better for long term future prospects because it is a well-known programming language. Aside from this, im very much agree that some Android uses Java knowledge.

    I already gave you my suggestion, as well as an explanation as to why this isn't really a question we can answer. Unless you have a more specific question, I'm going to close this thread.
