If you have zero experience in computer vision I think you should start by reading some book for beginners. This will give you understanding of the complexity of the field you are getting into. And it will give you necessary vocabulary so that you will be able to ask questions and understand answers.

Amount of "image processing for beginners" books is really huge, but I think that "Digital Image Processing" by Gonzalez and Woods is the most popular of them. This book was given to me when I got into the field and it was extremely helpful.

In addition to the post of @Michael Burdinov, take a look at these openCV starter books. Together with the tutorial page in the documentation, they are a good starting point. Especially the OpenCV starter book.

After you have mastered these, take the next step of moving to android developping. I think it would be a bad idea to start with that without mastering the basics.
