    New To Android?!? Check This Out!

    Hello and Welcome to the forums!


    Iím just putting this together to help out all that are new to the Android OS. Its hard coming from a non-android phone and trying to just jump right in. So here are a few (well, a lot) of links to get reading on to help you become familiar with the operating system.

    Will add more so check back!! You can skim through and find which article(s) suit you.

    NOTE: just because I post it, it does not mean i agree with it. One example is the use of task killers: some people use them, others (including me) do not. its up to you what you ultimately choose to run on your phone. Iím just posting these to help ease into the new OS and get some helpful tips to create a setup that works for you. Your mileage may vary and, as always, every (An)Droid is different!
