Going Online with Android

Let's face it. You wouldn't be buying a smartphone if you didn't want to go online. Going online doesn't just mean using the built-in web browser in Android. Whether you're using apps or checking your contact list, talking on the phone is just about the only activity that doesn't involve some sort of data plan. That's one of the reasons you can't buy an Android phone without also purchasing a data plan. Trust me, you wouldn't want to try it anyway.

In this chapter, I'll talk about getting online with Android. Android works best when it works online. Google purchased and developed the Android platform with the idea of storing data online or "in the cloud," rather than just on the device. I'll go over the different ways your phone can access data, and how to get the fastest connection with the least amount of battery drain.
