5.0 out of 5 stars Web Geek's Guide to the Android-Enabled Phone 28 Dec. 2009
By Tami Brady TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Web Geek's Guide to the Android-Enabled Phone covers Android 1.5. Since the average person has no clue what an Android-Enabled phone is, the book starts off explaining in plain English the connection between this technology and Google. Essentially, the thought is that phones are fast becoming mini-computers. Soon, your phone will be your office without an office. This need will require better methods of connecting to the Internet and flexible ways for users to get/use/create the applications that they need to do their jobs.

In this way, T-Mobile is heavy on Internet based access. It also allows the user to create or adapt applications to suit individual needs. While this aspect might be a bit beyond most users, it is a step in the right direction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for late-version of Android mobile phones 8 Sept. 2012
By Victor L. Nazaire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently made the acquisition of an LG mobile Android phone
and needed a way to learn quickly about the features and uses.

The Web geek`s guide to the Android-Enabled Phone is a misnomer
as it suits fine non-geeks.

Though published in 2010 , it will be useful to 2012 Android phone
users as the functionalities are 85 - 95 % the same.

The book is divided in three parts : Devices, The applications, the Android platform
with 2 appendixes on Troubleshooting and Keyboard shortcuts. An index is provided.

The only negative is the lack of colors, just in black and white; but even with that,
the text is clear and easy to follow for a beginner with Android phones.

yes,it`s that good.
