Jan. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Earlier this month, International Publisher Springer-Verlag and it's Apress subsidiary showed off its Second Edition of the top selling educational title Android Apps for Absolute Beginners at the prestigious International CES 2013 Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The book was featured in the Press Room in the Las Vegas Convention Center, and review copies were given away to the Press, for the purpose of writing book reviews on this vanguard new title, which covers the most recent Android 4.2 O/S known as Jelly Bean Plus.

"I am extremely pleased with the amazing response of the attendees at the recent CES Trade Show earlier this month," beamed Author Wallace Jackson, CEO of Mind Taffy Design, a New Media Content and Campaign Production Agency. "The current popularity of the Android OS, and it's ever increasing market share, is driving a huge demand and immense popularity for well written books that can teach anyone, even those who are not currently programmers, how to create an Android application."

Android Apps for Absolute Beginners takes the neophyte Android programmer reader on a detailed journey through the Android 4.2 O/S set-up, history, lingo, structure, approach, standards, syntax, rules, language and constructs, and at the end of this journey, the reader knows exactly what Android is, and how and why it works.

"The ever popular Android O/S continues to span consumer electronics devices from Smartphones to Tablets to iTV sets to e-Book Readers to Watches to Set-Top Boxes and Home Media Centers these days, across literally hundreds of major manufacturers," explained Author Wallace Jackson. "Our goal with this new version was to have one single book provide all of our valued readers with the foundation in Android programming that would allow them to develop for any and all of these consumer electronics platforms, and we rewrote the book from scratch with our current reader base feedback, and we hit a grand slam home run with this Second Edition."
