    I am surrounded by iPhone fans at home and they seem to think that it's the best technology has to offer.

    I showed my mom the Evo 4G in private because my sister seems to just get mad when I say anything that is "anti-iPhone." :rolleyes: She is already very interested. It seems that the only thing holding her back is the pricing (Sprint vs. AT&T)

    Look - I'm not looking for another Apple vs. Google/HTC debate.

    I just want you guys to tell me what other things I could say that would make her jump ship to Android. :)

    I already showed her the HDMI capabilities (watch movies on the big screen from your phone), camera and some of the GUI.

    Well, if the features don't get her on-board, you might try the stats on how Android devices are now beginning to overtake iPhone.

    That's not small potatoes; Android is the new kid on the block in some ways, but has come out swinging and really has a lot to offer, from a growing apps Market to better configurability.

    Why is pricing holding her back, AT&T cannot possibly be cheaper than Sprint.

    Does the iPhone have free navigation? Also mention you can use an Android phone without having to sync/connect it to a computer.

    Make sure you emphasize the future capabilities of the Android.

    Thanks.

    She really likes the fact that you can stream movies to your HDTV through the HDMI cable.

    Tell her that it's the "biggest" that she can get. She'll know what that means. Good luck!

    Tell her you can actually send/receive calls with sprint, and sprint has the only 4g network.
