Tips for going from Ruby/Python to Java?

I'm teaching myself to program. I learned the basics with Ruby on Rails, and I'm now coding in Python and Javascript, but I want to try an Android app, and that requires that I use Java. Going from Ruby to Python to Javascript was relatively painless, but I feel like I'm starting all over looking at Java code. Does anyone have any tips for going from scripted languages to Java? Or any really great tutorials for getting started in Java? Or any great tutorials for beginning programmers for Android?
