    VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Are you looking just to get started with your Droid X, or want to dig deep into the phone's capabilities? Either way, this book is for you! Author Preston Gralla has done an outstanding job of writing a book that will help you get the most out of your Droid X. Gralla, begins by covering everything you need to know about using the Android phone; as well as, how to type on it, send text messages, and use a nifty feature called Visual Voice Mail. Next, the author shows you how to use the Droid X to take pictures, record videos, view pictures, play videos, and play and manage your music. He continues by showing you the many ways in which the Droid X connects you to the outside world. Then, the author explains everything you need to know about the Droid X's remarkable online talents. Finally, he shows you how- to sync and transfer files between the Droid X and your PC and MAC; to use the Droid X at your workplace; and, to control the Droid X by talking to it. This most excellent book will put you on the fast track to all of the Droid X's advanced features! More importantly, if you read this book from cover to cover, you'll find detailed instructions on how to activate your Droid X; what kind of accessories you can get for your Droid X; and, how to trouble shoot issues with the phone's operation.
