Android Tablet Application Development For Dummies is a beginner's guide to developing Android applications.
The Android platform is a device-independent platform, which means that you can develop applications for various devices. (These devices include but aren't limited to phones, e-book readers, netbooks, and GPS devices. Soon, television sets will join the list. Yes, you read it correctly — TV! Google has announced plans to include a Google TV offering in the Android platform.) However, this book emphasizes development for tablet devices above all others.
Finding out how to develop for the Android platform opens a large variety of development options for you. This book distills hundreds, if not thousands, of pages of Android documentation, tips, tricks, and tutorials into a short, digestible format that allows you to springboard into your future as an Android developer. This book isn't a recipe book, but it gives you the basic knowledge to assemble various pieces of the Android framework to create interactive and compelling applications.
