    Hello everyone, I am new to the forum so take it easy on me! I will use the search function asap. But before I do that, I would like your opinions...

    I am supposed to give a 4min informative speech tomorrow at school and I was thinking about doing it as a Smartphone (android/iphone) speech to inform everyone about the new android phones and how they stack up against the iphone. Do you guys/girls think I will be able to get 4min of information/slides pretty easily to explain the new phones (since it seems so many are switching to a smart phone these days and know very little about the android). If you have any suggestions or links that you'd like to share with me that would be great! I'm tryin to figure out what my 3 main points could be. I do not personally have either phone yet, but I am in the process of trying to pick the best android I can by the end of my tmobile contract in march. Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide.

    Try googling iPhone VS Android. Read as much as you can and see if there are some comparison charts you can use (or make your own) to use as talking points. Four minutes is really nothing if you're a good talker, and you should be able to find plenty of information. I could probably fill a 4 minute speech just talking about the differences in design philosophy alone without even getting into specifics.

    Get started researching now though if you have to have it by tomorrow. You'll be better off if you have a firm mental grasp of the differences and you're not just reading off information. The more you can expand on what you have to show your audience, the longer your speech will be.

    Maybe focus on some specific areas to split up your talk and give it structure, eg

    - Hardware spec / choice of devices / price
    - market comparison (closed vs open / num of apps)
    - itunes vs doubletwist

    etc etc
