I think this book is different because it reaches outside of the normal Android development process. Pieter did an excellent job of showing that Android is more than just a Java development environment. And I think I showed that HTML and Flex/AIR apps are valid technologies on Android. We tried not to wast pages on things that are easily googled, we wanted to show how flexible Android is, and how well it can fit into a bigger development ecosystem, interacting with services and reusing code.

Will you also be offering any cross platform development points (in particular re. HTML(5) applications)? Thanks

Yes, the HTML and Flex/AIR chapters are there to offer a cross platform strategy.
