I recently purchased my first android tablet, the Toshiba Thrive. The forum I joined, ThriveForums.org had an advertisement for this book on the site, so I thought I'd check it out. Having seen where another reviewer said you can find the same information that is contained in this book by searching the web, I was a little hesitant to buy it, but Amazon has a feature that allows you to preview some of the sections of the book, so I took advantage of that to see for myself. I liked what I saw, and realized that having this wealth of information right at my fingertips, without having to search the web for it, would be very useful to me, and save me time.

I purchased the digital version of the book so I could have access to it right away. The information in this book is formatted in an easy to follow style with lots of useful illustrations and screenshots. The book covers in detail everything a beginner to android tablets needs to learn. It goes on to give detailed step by step instruction on the more advanced things that can be done on an android tablet, so the book's usefulness will extend well into the future. It even has resources for advanced users and developers.

I'm very pleased with "Android Tablets Made Simple" and highly recommend it for learning to unlock the amazing potential of your Android tablet device.

The book arrived promptly, it was very recently written just a month ago so it covers everything android from start to ICS(ice cream sandwich) and is incredibly thorough. Without question it is the best item I have purchased to get me going with my Transformer Prime, which for me was my first device using an android os. The book really does cover it all and in doing so of course it touches on a few topics that don't apply to me but that is what happens when attempting to cover so much information. It is easy to find subjects and instructions and once found it is an easy read. As for content the book gets an A+ but unfortunately there is one problem and as it comes from Amazon I had no way to provide feedback to the "seller." These books are evidently printed upon order placement and when they printed mine they didn't have the GLUE MACHINE set right and nobody checked the book e.g. QUALITY CONTROL. The pages were falling out of the book as they were only partially glued to the spine. Luckily I had a long thing injector tube from a project years ago and was able to reset the pages and glue them securely to the spine so all is well now. Regardless it was very frustrating that I am able to provide seller feedback on all other items purchased from outside vendors but not Amazon so unless someone reads this full review the issue would not be known. That said I still think for owners of any android phone, tablet, not just the Asus TF201, this is the absolute best book to get you going that I have found to date.

Format: Paperback
It was some what helpful but it pushes Google base apps. I wanted a book that could tell me how to use an Android Tablet as I was new to it. How to down load movies,pictures set up Yahoo mail what apps are needed to use these functions so the book not at all helpful in that matter. You would think someone would get it?? There are allot of people out there that has never used android or apps, Just wanted something to help make the transition easy??

Ten thousand words to explain what is readily apparent, and almost nothing about making your tablet do what is not readily apparent. Once you fully master this book, you still won't have the tablet capability that will satisfy you -- unless all you want it for is to read eBooks and read and send email.

I don't know if there is a better book out there, but I do know that a less expensive, and less wordy way to become good on your Android tablet is to Google any questions you have. You'll get to your goal of being a competent tablet user a lot less laboriously.

I thought this would help me figure out my new google android tablet. I not technically smart, but usually can figure things out with a book. This really did not help me as I had hoped for,

This is a great book. It covers the capabilities of almost all Android tablets. It was just what I was looking for to expand my knowledge of capabilities and uses for Android tablets. Great buy

Not very good for my Toshiba Tablet. Would have liked a book on Toshiba version alone. Very few items were adequate.
