Hi Lucas Jordan & Pieter Greyling ,
Recently new version of API with Honeycomb released by the Google. Is your book talks about app development for tablet PC or anything related to HoneyComb?? I heard the interface, graphic animation improved a lot via the API. Is it discussed in the book??

Hi Mayu,
No, we do not cover the Android 3.0 SDK (Honeycomb) since it was only released a few weeks ago. The book covers ADK 2.3 (Gingerbread) which is the latest version before Honeycomb and the one most devices, especially Android smartphones, are aiming for at this point.

Thanks a lot Pieter for the prompt reply. Yeah I agree most of the latest devices are running on 2.3 even Galaxy S. That'll b indeed a incredible chance for us to learn about Android Mobile Dev.
