Synopses & Reviews
A Note from the Author and from O'Reilly Media about what this bookdoes--and doesn't--do:
Launched by iPhone's success and fueled by additional players in the market, mobile devices are taking off, and so are books on the subject. According to BookScan, books on mobile devices garnered more than $1.99 million in 2008, with big surge of sales in the final month. O'Reilly has several top sellers, including the first two editions of David Pogue's popular iPhone: The Missing Manual (9780596513740, 1st edition; 9780596521677, 2nd edition), and the first two editions of iPhone Open Application Development (9780596518554, 1st edition; 9780596155193, 2nd edition).
