The book is replete with examples (both conceptual and applied to handhelds) as well as:
* Summaries at the end of each chapter.
* Problems the students can do as homework.
* Experiment-oriented exercises and questions for students to complete on a handheld device
* A reading list, bibliography and a list of sources for handheld software
It also contains a series of on-line laboratories based on the software developed for Symbian OS devices. Students can perform these labs anywhere, and can use printing and e-mail facilities to construct lab write-ups and hand in assignments.
Students, for the first time, will be taught Symbian OS concepts so that they can start developing smartphone applications and become part of the mass-market revolution.
