iPhone for Dummies Book Out Already?

iPhone for Dummies

I was surprised to see this iPhone for Dummies book on Amazon already, 2 months before the iPhone even comes out.

The Amazon book summary says:

What the book covers: Getting started with your iPhone, setting up iTunes and your iPhone, getting organized with your iPhone, browsing the Internet with your iPhone, sending and receiving E-mail with your iPhone, buying music and videos from the iTunes store, taking great pictures with your iPhone, organizing and managing your photos, syncing up with your desktop, protecting your information, troubleshooting, and more.

The book’s authors are going to have to quickly learn the iPhone features in June, write about them, and have the book ready for publication by September (the publication date is listed on Amazon as September 24).

Just goes to show how much buzz the iPhone has created, that everyone’s jumping on the iPhone train trying to profit off it, including the popular …for Dummies book series. Click the book image above for a larger view of the cover.
