Smartphones, by now, have entered our lives not only as users and consumers but also as producers of our own content. Though this kind of device has been on the market since 1992 (the first was the Simon model by IBM), the big diffusion was driven by Apple's iPhone, when it was produced in 2007 (this year, the fifth generation of this device has been released). Meanwhile, another big giant, Google, developed an open source product to be used as the internal operating system in mobile devices; in a different manner from the leader of the market, this company doesn't constraint itself to a unique hardware-specific device, but allows third-party companies to use it on their cell phones, which have different characteristics. The big advantage was also to be able to sell this device to consumers that don't want to (or can't have) spend as much money as the Apple phone costs. This allowed Android to win the battle of diffusion.


But there is another side to the coin. A variety of devices by different producers means more fragmentation of the underlying system and a non-uniform user experience that can be really disappointing. As programmers, we have to take into account these problems and this book strives to be a useful guideline to solve that problem.


Who this book is for

The target audience of this book are the programmers that already know how to program the Android platform, and want to know how to write well-behaving applications that are backward compatible with almost the entire Android ecosystems.
