My book "iPad Pocket Guide" Is Now Available for Pre-Order

ipad_pocket_guide_cover_amazon.jpgI'm hard at work on my next book, The iPad Pocket Guide, which is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com for only $10.19 and at Barnes & Noble for $10.11!

Amazon lists the release date as June 11, but I'm sure that's just a placeholder. I want to have most of the book written by the time the iPad arrives on April 3 so we can get it printed and distributed as soon as possible after the iPad launch.

Does this mean I have an iPad at my disposal? Sadly, no. I'll be getting my iPad when it ships just like everybody else. I did attend Apple's media event, where I was able to use an iPad for about 45 minutes. (You can read about my hands-on impressions at TidBITS, as well as view a photo tour of what it's like to attend a high-profile Apple event like that.)

I'm writing the book based on that experience as well as my knowledge of the iPhone and iPod touch as an owner and author of Take Control of Your iPhone Apps. When I have an iPad in hand, I'll then go back through and fill in gaps and details I didn't have initially.

We're hanging out for your book, Jeff! We're being starved of practical information right now. How will we connect a memory stick; print; backup; connect an accessory camera for Skype, etc. etc.
