I agree. I don't see any reason for them to release the books one by one.
Oh yes, to keep up the interest, hits, advertising etc....

To have people searching for the next ones, finding then on torrent sites, and decide to download them with the solemn promise that they would buy the books when they are released...

I am with Kenny for once. By drawing out the releases, they can make more money. Additional hype, anticipation, and traffic to the site can be generated.

As far as pirating it, well, if people were going to pirate, wouldn't they have done it already?

If each book would only cost one $, I wouldn't mind.

Great work, thanks for posting here Tim.

Some new/noteworthy things I discovered scanning through manual:
  • Page 13 "Turn on USB storage" screen which is basically every on Android device I've seen that lets you access the SD card.
  • Page 48 - 1000mA rechargeable battery

Thanks for that, also it appears that sections are missing, e.g. how to connect to a wifi network, or downloading from Google Books or the public library (the parts I was most interested in, naturally).
