Future has launched a bookazine aimed squarely at silver surfers purchasing a new smartphone. The guide covers iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone, and I contributed a number of rewritten and brand new guides for Android users. New guides include setting up your new phone, installing anti-virus software, encrypting your phone for better security, using the Google Keyboard app in place of the stock Android keyboard, and making the most of your web browser. The printed version is in the shops now for £9.99, or you can order it online here.
