    Thanksgiving was yesterday here in America, and as such, it was one of few times where my family sits around the table to eat dinner, talk, and share good times. As I took the biggest bite out of a piece of turkey that I’ve ever taken, I couldn’t help but notice that everyone in my [...]

    The only other person in my family with an Android phone is my uncle who has a Motorola Devour. Everyone else is either dumbphone or BlackBerry.

    I convinced my wife to get the Desire in May (jealous that my contract wasn't up) then my youngest son got his desire in September shortly after that I got my Wildfire so in my house there is only one odd one out, the elder son will not give up his N95 8Gb.

    I was saving to get a droid I would have been the first in my family to adopt a smartphone. Then there was a competition held by a new mobile provider to receive as many messages as possible in a text race.

    Although if you received 10,000 texts (not hard due to many people being on unlimited texts here in NZ) You were Guaranteed a Huawei Ideos.

    So now me and both my brothers as well as my best mate and his gf all have the same phone due to this race

    My wife just got the DroidPro last week. It has taken her all this time to come to like it, but today she finally admitted so. She was coming from Blackberry and the DP was the best fit for her IMO.

    Me, my girl, uncle, and nephew had android phones. Despite, some of them not knowing what android was. Uncle thought it was the ability to search google...:confused:

    My little girly niece had an iPhone and was charging/checking it every freaking second. :mad:

    Well, my kid (sometimes) has a rooted Eris because I gave it to her when I upgraded to the Fascinate.

    But she uses the (Sprint) Tour most often, "texting is lame with those 'Droid things" she said.

    So, I have an extra line and my old Eris to play with now and then. :rolleyes:

    Wife has an ancient LG, pink flip phone.

    Me, my brother, my gf all have androids (Desire/Hero/Hero...) about to sort my mum out with either a Desire or galaxy S, which ever one she prefers to use really.

    Sister is another story... if that R2D2 droid was available easily in the UK I'm sure she'd be switch from her iphone in a second :D Easily swayed by pretty things she is.

    I have an Evo, my dad an Epic, my mom a Hero (getting an evo in Feb, though she might get the HTC Knight), my step mom is getting an Optimus S here in a month, and my step sister is the only one plugging along on a junk phone (iPhone 3G), as well as my grandparents with Nextel phones (they don't need anything more, they hate messing with out phones in general).
