The book has been translated into Korean and should be available to Korean readers today. Additionally, the book was licensed for translation into Simplified Chinese, but I've not yet received information about availability of that edition.
Now, for the first time, there's a concise, practical, developer's guide to succeeding with PhoneGap in real-world mobile development. Long-time mobile developer John M. Wargo (author of BlackBerry Development Fundamentals) thoroughly introduces the PhoneGap platform: what it is, what it does, and how it works. Next, the book guides developers through configuring their PhoneGap development environments, creating a complete mobile app, and then configuring and building it for leading mobile platforms Google Android, Samsung bada, RIM BlackBerry, Apple iOS, Symbian and Windows Phone. Example applications highlight PhoneGap's APIs, demonstrating how to use mobile platform capabilities ranging from GPS and accelerometers to file systems and built-in applications. Readers also learn how to make the most of PhoneGap Build, PhoneGap's cloud-based packaging utility.
This book is for developers who are just getting started with PhoneGap development and need to know what PhoneGap is all about, what tools are provided and how to use them plus detailed information about how to leverage the PhoneGap API's in their applications. The book is chock full of sample applications that highlight the capabilities of each PhoneGap API.
PhoneGap Essentials is now available - it shipped June 11th and is available on amazon.com and other places on the web.
