Droid X2 and Galaxy Tab--Two New Missing Manuals from O'Reilly Media

Greetings,

"Android has become the world's dominant mobile operating system," says author Preston Gralla, "and the Droid X2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab are two of the most powerful, cutting-edge devices making use of the latest version of Android. However, these devices are actually very powerful computers with remarkably sophisticated capabilities, and I want people to use the limits of their capabilities, without having to struggle."

With Droid X2: The Missing Manual, Second Edition and Galaxy Tab: The Missing Manual, readers will be able to confidently use all of the features and capabilities, and customize any settings so that the devices work exactly the way they want.
