Guys,

I do not see any such documentation from the Android website that is a full fledged reference documentazion. Is there any place where I could get it?

The Web site has the same documentation that comes with the SDK, including a developer guide and API reference. Those are fairly decent for a project of this scope, though they are certainly not complete. They are, however, everything there is, from an official source.

Thanks Mark. I could see from Amazon that you have a title for Android. Is that one meant for advanced developers?

I'm simply just interested to explore on developing Mobile Apps. I guess they would be revolutionizing the future of java development.

I think it's the other way around - Java may revolutionize the future of mobile :-)

The book on Amazon is for newcomers to Android. Those who subscribe to the digital edition also get a work-in-progress book on more advanced Android topics.

There are a few Android books on the JavaRanch book promotion schedule, including one you may recognize...

Yes, for those who haven't figured it out yet, Mark is the guest author for the book promotion -- that is due to be started in .... about 12 hours or so....
