3.0 out of 5 stars Needs to be updated March 10 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book needs updating as it was written before the operating system was updated to 2.0 hence it doesn't deal with android apps.

2.0 out of 5 stars WAY OUT OF DATE July 6 2012
By harry
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is way out of date. Items such as how to attach an item to a email is not covered. How to turn off email from being received not covered. Well I will tell you how. You have to turn off the WIFI connection. BlackBerry has not set this tablet to turn off Email from being received.I suggest you try a more up to-date nook .
