Droid "Missing Manual" Desperately Needed!

How about a Droid Missing Manual? Soon! The PDF Droid Manual that is downloadable from the Verizon website is just about useless. And PLEASE make the Droid Missing Manual more complete than your Palm Pre Missing Manual was (that was a real disappointment and not up to your usual standard).

  • Hello William: I'm sorry to report that we don't have any current plans to publish a Missing Manual about the Droid. We are planning to publish an eBook called Nexus One: The Mini Missing Manual, which will contain some information about the Droid OS (but not the hardware).

  • I’m frustrated
    In September 2010 I purchased a Droid X. I was so excited to see that a Droid X missing Manual was going to be published in November, so I pre-ordered it (from Amazon).
    However, I have received 4 communications that the delivery time was slipping!! I can certainly understand one, maybe 2, changes in the delivery date. However, I'm astonished that O'Reilly has either no control at all over the publishing process or they're dealing with people who cannot maintain a production schedule. Is it possible that the material was not yet ready for publication?
    I currently own 17 publications from O'Reilly and have always been impressed with the quality of the publication, as well as the timeliness of material. However, this situation with the Droid X Missing Manual leaves me wondering who is in control of the printing and how the estimates could have been so far off and changed so frequently. Hopefully this is an isolated incident, but this book may be out of date before it reaches the street.

    I’m hopeful
    Hi Richard,

    Droid X: The Missing Manual and Droid 2: The Missing Manual are scheduled to release in January 2010 with no further delays! I apologize for your frustration.
