You won't need any previous Android experience, because you'll learn all about the basic structure of an Android program and how the Android operating system works-and then you'll learn how to write your first Android tablet application from scratch! Beginning  Android 3 Tablet Programmingthen shows you how to build a set of interesting and fully-working Android tablet applications. These projects will give you the inspiration and insight to build your own Android programs in the future. You'll be introduced to 2D programming, and you'll see what you can do with a touch screen interface and the Honeycomb SDK. Of course 3D programming is even more alluring for many programmers, and if that includes you then you can learn about how Honeycomb has changed the game for Android graphics programming, and get your first taste of 3D programming on an Android tablet. Lights, Camera, and Action! You'll learn along the way how Android "Honeycomb" gives you access, through your programming, to all those interesting sensors that tablet computers are equipped with today beyond the touch screen itself. You'll learn by example, how you can use a tablet GPS sensor to locate your car!
