Could this be the end of Java? Main reason into Java is for dev Android apps.
No, it is not a bad idea if you are worried about it going away. It cannot, there is an immense investment by so many parties in the language that it simply will not go away.
If you want to develop great Android apps, you will really be required to utilize Java if you want to be proficient with building apps on the platform. Certainly you can do some things with C++, but for the most part, the vast majority of Android apps are built entirely in Java.
Regardless, you will gain experience in venturing into Java and Android, and this experience will translate to other language and platforms, so you will not be losing anything by investing time.
