Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 8-9 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Out of Stock'

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

'Temporarily Unavailable'

The product is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase. The product could to be in stock soon. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know when it is available for purchase.

'Permanently Discontinued'

This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

'Out of Print'

This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Summary Of The Book


With Android smart-phones doing the rounds in the market these days, the Android platform as well as its applications are the current rage. However, many people out there are clueless as to what Android entails and the know-how required to create one’s own applications.


This handy guide is just the book for beginners.

He further proceeds to guide readers on their way to help create their own applications.


The book is replete with examples from real life scenarios and the knowledge and information provided is authentic.


Lee begins by explaining what an activity is before proceeding to customize these activities and apply various styles and themes to them. He then zeroes in on the screen and discusses, in detail, its components such as Relative Layout, Linear Layout, and Absolute Layout. Next, Lee teaches beginners how to adjust the display and different screen sizes. Text messaging, networking, and the variety of views (Text View, Time Picker, Progressor) are covered next. Lee also teaches his readers the different methods of creating Android services and educates them on how to interact with these services.


The book is ideal for anyone with a sound background in programming. Beginning Android Application Development was published in 2011.

First to review

Awesome Book

It has been a pleasure to learn Android application development with this book. I'm writing this review after I've finished more 3/4th of the book. There is very little flaw in it so far. Author Wei Meng Lee is really good. There is a certain sense of calmness in his words, which, to me, has been very helpful.

Good Opener into Android Development

This book is pretty good for Android Development Beginners. Being one myself, I have found it pretty useful and informative. Another book that comes to mind, is the "Hello, Android" Book by Burnette, also available on Flipkart.

I recommend this book for beginners like me, and also for trained professionals.

Waste of time if you actually want to learn something.

All the book contains is a step by step walkthrough on creating an app. Nothing more.
It teaches you nothing. Does not address doubts, or ambiguities. Does not explain WHY something is being done.
It is as good as an instruction manual, with zero teaching capabilities

I would HIGHLY discourage it if you want to learn to develop Android apps, and not just make one.
