Highly disappointing... June 10 2007
By Frank Steegmans - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I honestly don't understand why these other reviewers think this book is worth a five star rating. My first inclination was to rate it only one star but to be fair it's a good collection of information which you otherwise have to Google to together yourself. That's why I ultimately gave it 2 stars.

The authors (or editor) took the "say what you are going to say, say it, and than say what you just said" principle to new extremes. Every chapter, section and some paragraphs apply this principle so often that it got me completely aggravated.

Did I mention the ubiquitous usage of Visual Studio screenshots? Even to the point where there are full page screenshots to show the reader how to change a property? Contentwise this book should have been a third of its current size.

Talking about a content, this book resembles a collection of unrelated research papers, course material and some of the wall writing thrown together to get a book out the door. I know these are often the source of good books, but for the reader's sake, the editor and Wrox could have done a better job of at least making this look like a coherent write up.

I was really looking forward when this book got announced. I expect more from Wrox, that's why I am highly disappointed...

Great resource for smartphone application development Feb. 19 2007
By H. Zhou - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you need to develop smartphone applications, this book is a comprehensive guide that you must have. The book first gives introduction to Microsoft smartphone and .NET architecture, and then presents a lot of hands-on examples and projects on IDE, UI design, data storage and File I/O, networking, graphics, and so on. The book also has chapters specially devoted to debugging, security, and performance. Overall, the authors will guide you from beginning of smartphone programming to professional development in the book. I highly recommend this book.
