    Hi !

    I have a lot of experience with Windows, Unix, Palm even DOS - but the Nook Color is my first Android device.

    Most of the issues are similar to the old Palm/Clie world (even similar apps).

    But every new area has different terminology (for example, "sideload" was "upload" or "sync" in Palm world).

    So, can anyone point me to a good Android primer ?

    Thanks.

    I learned my way around Android by researching a bunch of sites. I don't know of one guide in particular. We are here if you have questions. Here a couple that I believe are good resources...

    Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog - All about Android and the DROID lineup of phones, Rooting, Apps, Reviews and Videos.

    Android Life: An Android Community Blog - An Android Community Blog covering major Android devices releases and rumors.

    *edit: keep in mind, while I love my Mac computer, they are Apple fanboys over at Engadget. So just know that their reviews are sometimes biased.

    LOL, spit coffee on my keyboard. I knew there was a reason I hung out on this forum beyond the good Android insights.
