Droids Made Simple and Android Fully Loaded

If you're new to Android (or even an old pro) and are looking for some even more collections off how-tos, tips and tricks, we've got a couple books you should check out (in addition to Android Central, natch).

Droids Made Simple (Apress), by Gary Mazo, Martin Trautschold and Marziah Karch, is written for owners of the Droid, Droid 2/Global and Droid X and is full of screenshots and step-by-step instructions. It's available in eBook format for $17.49 or in hardcopy from Amazon for $24.99.

Android Fully Loaded (Wiley), by Rob Huddleston, is an instructional book for the entire Android platform, from camera use to music to e-mail. It's available for $24.99.

Full disclosure: Droids Made Simple and Android Fully Loaded were tech edited by our own Phil Nickinson, who also is Huddleston's long lost cousin. They're all still talking to Phil even after working with him.

Android books worth checking out: Droids Made Simple and Android Fully Loaded


On the subject of books, I'd like to test the waters of Android development. Any suggested starting points?

The Android Cookbook might be what you're looking before, I'm probably going to get it sometime in the future.

It's funny that the screens of the droids looks eerily reminiscent of the AT&T logo..
