About the book
Tablet PCs are taking the computing world by storm and with good reason: they are compact, powerful, mobile and packed full of functionality for almost every need. Tablets are powered by different operating systems and Android tablets are one of the major players in this area.
Android Tablets in easy steps looks at the range of devices available and their specifications and functionality. It also gives a full rundown of the latest version of Android and how to use it on your tablet in terms of navigating around, performing all of your favourite tasks, getting online and turning your tablet into your own mobile entertainment centre.
Android on tablets has evolved from the same system as on smartphones and Android tablets offer the same interactive, touch screen experience. The book shows how to find your way around with Android and how to customize the look and feel of your tablet with a variety of different settings.
Apps are a crucial part of Android tablets and this is covered in depth, from using the preinstalled apps, to downloading and using the huge selection available from the Google Play Store. It also shows how to use your Android tablet for your entertainment needs, including music, movies, photos, books and games.
Online connectivity is another vital element for tablets and the book looks at connecting to the Web via Wi-Fi, using email, setting up online contacts and using all of your favourite social networking sites at the tap of a button.
Security on tablets is just as important as on any other computer and this is covered in terms of preventing access to your tablet and staying safe online and when using your apps.
Overall, Android Tablets in easy steps provides a visual and comprehensive guide to the next evolution in the computing world so that you can confidently immerse yourself in a truly mobile computing experience.
