I have been working in asp.net from past 5 years. I have so far liked it. But I am seeing a new boom in the market. And its not all about money. People are going towards iphone developement and android developement. since I have not done developments in both. so was wondering if it is better to stay where and what I am doing or take a risk and should try to learn these technologies and jump with new job. Would my web development background anyhow support this new learning?

Whats wrong with learning them on the side? I don't know much about iphone apps, but androids are just using eclipse and android SDK. http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-developers/indigosr1 http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html They are a huge market if you have an idea worth downloading. And they pull an audience to your website if you have one, (so even if its free, you can get them to come look at other things you do/make, great way to advertise)
As for web development background, it would be a good help, I've seen a lot of sites like http://www.appsgeyser.com/ Pop up left a right, which is just using a "mobile web page" to make the app.
