I'm relatively new to Android land as well, but from what I've done so
far, yes, it's accessible depending on your experience.

Android comes with a variety of development tools; there's, as you
mentioned, a plugin for Eclipse to help streamline the development
experience (auto generated project files).

However, all of this can be done by hand via the Android SDK using
command line tools.  One can also specify UI elements within an
AndroidManifest xml file.

The learning curve isn't too bad as long as you are fairly comfortable
with exploring the technology stack (from the tools, to the SDK, to
the application concepts such as intents, broadcasts, services, etc.
and finally to managing a real device such as flashing, rooting,
etc.).
