I've been developing in Java for 8 years, but haven't ventured into the mobile realm yet. Is this book designed for the absolute mobile developer novice?

Also, thank you for spending your time here at the Ranch. Being able to interact directly with experts in the field is a unique opportunity.

From Amazon.com:

Who this book is for?

This book is targeted at web developers looking to transfer their skills over to mobile application development. Readers will understand that Android is continuing to gain momentum in the marketplace and will want to build an application specifically for that platform. They will have a strong desire to use web technologies rather than the native tools to build applications, either due to personal taste or to gain cross-platform mobile portability for the majority of their application code.

Thanks. Unfortunately I can't access Amazon from here at my office, as they block all "shopping" sites.

Hi Mike,
Just a precision, this book is about Mobile Web apps and not native apps. So it's easier if you have already some html/javascript/css experience.
But this book also cover how you can convert a Web app to Native app.

Sounds good to me, as the Java work I've been doing is on a J2EE Web App.
