An excellent guide to the features of the Google operating system, as well as tips of care and maintenance of phones. This superb operating system is complex and has a lot to offer, and without the PocketGuide I may never have discovered some of the really cool things you can do with it. The book is short, to the point and small enough to keep in the pocket of a laptop case or pocket book so it's no hassle to carry it around. My wife and I have learned about a lot of useful features that apply to both my Droid Eris and her Motorola Droid--or any other Google Phone for that matter. For example, the GOS allows you to create a graphic "connect the dots" password that is far easier to enter than any text password. (Why didn't I think of that?) Customizing the home screen turned out to be remarkably easy--once the book explained how. There's not a stone left unturned. Probably the best how-to book I've ever purchased.
