This book focuses on Android technology for both phones and tablets. The difference between the two is slight, primarily that phones can place and receive phone calls and tablets feature more screen real estate. Beyond that, both devices work identically. Indeed, the existing titles featured a lot of overlap. As with previous titles, this book covers Android technology for a beginner or anyone who uses an Android mobile device and feels that the gizmo is getting the best of them This book documents all the features of the Android phone and/or tablet, approaching them from the point of view of a smart person who is intimidated by the technology and baffled by the scant documentation and online support. All topics for the Android will be covered, from setup and configuration, to use of the phone features: texting, e-mailing, accessing the Internet, maps, navigation, camera and video, synching with a PC, and expanding the device's potential with new software. As usual, humor is generously sprinkled throughout the text. The accessible and fun writing style provides relief but never gets in the way of the book's important content. The reader will end up keeping this book close, referring to it often as they explore the features of their Android phone or tablet. It covers all the updates to the OS through the latest version release.
