Android Tablets for Dummies (Paperback) (Dan Gookin)
about this item
This book is for people who want to get the most from their Android tablet and the new Marshmallow OS. There is a compelling draw to such technology and an obvious popularity, particularly as the tablet market heats up. The Apple iPad created and defined the tablet communications category of intelligent devices, but Android tablets are swiftly gaining ground in the worldwide tablet market. It's not a computer, and it's more than a smartphone. Tablets are surpassing the original basics of tablet computing offered-- Web, Email, eReader, Navigation, Music, Video, Camera – and now offering more advanced technology to engage in phone communications plus video chat and conferencing. That, coupled with the increasing popularity of the Android operating system and aggressive pricing, makes it a formidable contender.
This book documents the features of all Android tablets, 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 will be covered. As usual, humor is generously sprinkled through the text. It provides relief, but never gets in the way of important stuff. The reader will end up keeping this book close, referring to it often as they explore the features of their Android based tablet.
