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.

This book is way out of date.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 .

Very happy with this book, as I have been with all others in the series. It might be a bit dated, but updated material is easily available on the website for the publisher, so no problem.

This book is hopelessly out of date. Save your money. Borrow one from your library but don't expect any help for OS 2
