Start learnin mobile application programming

Specs: Windows 7, intel i5

I'm planning to start learning mobile application programming.

I think the most popular right now are iphone (iOS) and Android. Windows Phone 7 is new and not sure if I should spend time on that.

I want to start with iOS, but the problem is I don't have a macbook/imac. So I'm currently stuck with Android or WIndows Phone 7. Which one will look better on my resume?

Most mobile development studios out there will tell you Android looks to be the winner. If you ask them why, they might tell you because Microsoft has been a also-ran since they got into this market (back in 1996), Blackberry is too focused on the business IT market, and Apple is too . . . hostile. Take that as you will.

Which one will look better on my resume?
Depends on the phone you have. The interviewers will probably want to see proof of your mastery, so you'll want to whip out your phone and show them in the interview.

Each phone also uses a different programming language. This might influence your decision.
iOS: Objective-C
Android: Java
Blackberry: Java
Windows Phone: C# (or VB.NET, presumably)

Thanks for your reply.
Well, I'm planning to buy a new phone and I think I may get a phone with Android 2.3.(release soon).

Programming languages...
Well I learned JAVA back in University and currently learning C# and ASP.NET. I guess the syntax is very similar between objective-C, JAVA and C#. So I guess I wouldn't mind working either of them..
