You still have to learn openGL which is about the same in Java & C++.
Look-up the JOGL project.
And don't forget that alot (most) of Android games are made in JAVA.

The jump from 2D to 3D is going to be some work no matter how you do it, but I'd recommend sticking to what you're comfortable with (Java)--try out jME 3. The community is huge, active, and quite helpful. Lots of documentation & examples, demos, and so on.
If you find 3D is too big of a jump yet, look up Slick 2D, which has all the same positive aspects of jME (community, ease of use, Java, etc.).
Don't mess with LWJGL directly - it's too low level (anyway, both libs I'm recommending are basically object oriented wrapper libs for LWJGL).
(Actually, never mind Google, see links in signature...)
