What are the requirements to learn it???
Is it similar to JavaME???
Any advice would be appreciated.

Since it is a linux based operating system you should atleast be aware about linux fundamentals. Android powered phones comes unrooted (you are not the root or you can say you do not have administrative right) to avoid any damage to the device / software. If you are talking about developing android apps then you have to do some research yourself.
Is it similar to JavaME???
Nope. JavaME is legacy now as far as I am aware. Though it is still used on some Symbian powered phone but not as popular as OSs that are used on smart phones these days.
Come on now, who doesn't know what Android is? You would have to live under a rock with no media including tv, radio, newspapers, etc to not know what Android is. Its like saying you have never heard of Apple or Microsoft. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andro...erating_system)
Well, I find it hard to believe someone doesn't know about Android, but assuming you are being sincere, Android is a Linux based OS for phones and tablets. I have an Adnroid phone and several Android tablets, the best of which is my Asus Transformer tablet.
