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 immediate family owns an Android device. My mother owns my old G1 (though she doesn’t use anything but the Dialer, the Calculator, and the Calendar), my brother with his original Droid, my sister with her Epic 4G, her husband with his EVO 4G, and myself, of course. When I first got my G1 back in 2008, every last one of them stood unimpressed with it and went on about their merry Blackberry, Palm Pre, and Windows Mobile days.
And for good reason: the platform was getting off to a slow start and there was very little to impress with. As time went on, however, I’ve been able to do even cooler things with my phone thanks to the Android market, and with the help of the wonderful developers who fill it with all of the 100,000+ apps we have today, I slowly but surely converted every last one of them. Do you have a similar story to share? Is your family all ‘droided up?
