In this highly visual guide written in plain language, Baig, author of the weekly personal technology column in USA TODAY, explains everything you ever wanted to know about the Palm Pre smartphone, but were afraid to ask. The inviting color layout features color screenshots of features, buttons, and menus, plus tip boxes of additional information. The guide begins with an illustrated tour of all of the phone's features and related equipment, and instructions for what you need to do before using it. Step-by-step, illustrated instructions are then given for navigating the touchscreen, synching the phone over the Web, using it as a Web browser, and storing and sharing music, video, and photos. Appendices include references for activating the phone, buying programs from the App Catalog, and finding fixes. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
