When you are fluent in Java.

Android developers are expected to know Java. That way you can focus on learning Android and understand the Java without having to explain the Java language concepts.

Programming has an endless learning curve.

Don't be in a hurry.
Copying code from a book or tutorial is good,
but to become fluent you need to write your own code to cement the concepts.
It's like composing a letter in a foreign language. You need to be able to think in the foreign language.

You can move to Android once you have understood the fundamentals of the Java language. That includes

  1. variables,

  2. datatypes,

  3. constants,

  4. enums,

  5. basic input and output,

  6. operators,

  7. conditional statements (switch, if, if-else, if-else if-else statements),

  8. looping (while, do-while, for),

  9. typecasting,

  10. basic data structures like array and list,

  11. access modifiers (public, private, protected),

  12. methods,

  13. understanding static and final,

  14. classes

  15. interfaces

  16. abstract classes

  17. and other basic stuff.

You also need knowledge in Java's OOP concepts that includes, inheritance, polymorphism and encapsulation. You don't need to know everything about Java, just the basics I mentioned will give you a boost. You'll probably learn most of the Java stuff on your way. So my advise is for you to learn the basics I listed and when you have grasp the concept of the Java language and OOP concepts then you're ready to move. Android is a different beast you have to tame. Android != Java programming though fundamental knowledge is applicable to android. :)
