Not only have tablet computing devices captured a wide swath of the consumer electronics market, they are finding a warm welcome in many businesses, where portability, connectivity, and usability are key assets. As the Android tablet’s presence expands, businesses are hungry for applications that address their needs and problems. In PROGRAMMING BUSINESS APPLICATIONS FOR THE ANDROID TABLET, James C. Sheusi provides a quick start for prototyping applications on the mobile platform for the business applications programmer—focusing on such common business uses as database management, web-based user interfaces, and graphic representation of data.
