I seem to have more and more people I know using Android phones. I thought I'd start a page of Android resources I have found they may find useful.
First thing to know: Android is an operating system for phones like Windows 7, or Windows XP are operating systems for PCs. Any manufacturer can get Android for free and put it on their device (not just a phone). There are various Android versions.
Android Versions (version numbers and codename)
2.0 & 2.1 Eclair
2.3 Gingerbread (released 12-6-2010)
3.0 Honeycomb (for tablets, not phones)
Sources of Information about Android
The Complete Guide to Android is an eBook. You can purchase as a paperback, or a PDF file, or read free online.
They also have a great one page quick reference guide for new Android users.
Beginner's Guide to Setting up Android, from Lifehacker.com
Have you run into a term you do not know? Try AndroidCentral's Andriod Dictionary
I have bookmarked sites I find to my Public Bookmarks. I have Android Apps, Android in general and Android Development tags.
Security for your phone, from Lifehacker.com.
Here is a really good infographic about the history of Android.
Apps I Use
(free unless otherwise noted)
Listen by Google - downloads podcasts
Documents to Go - edit word and excel documentws - $14.99 (a someday app)
TweetDeck (pulls in Twitter and Facebook - now owned by Twitter, so I may have to replace when
the Google Plus API is released. I doubt Twitter will modify it to pull in G+)
Words with Friends
Missing Apps Available on iOS but not Android (yet)
Netflix (coming sometime in the future to select Android phones)
