I got one at the Pub meet, and although it didn't contain anything new for me, it is pretty good, especially for newbies!

Can someone pick up a copy for me please?

If you don't know where you're going, you'll end up somewhere else.

Where can you get this?

A friend of mine ordered a Nokia 6600 and I remembered reading about the Symbian Smartphones for Dummies book announcement. After searching the AAS site I found the announcement, but unfortunately I can't seem to find this book in any of the usual online book stores, eBay or even the Symbian Press web site (

Does anyone know what happened to this book? Does anyone know where I might be able to get a copy?

It sounds like this would be a nice intro book...
