Its funny, I have a friend who is kind of like a techno-geek, who at work loves to talk about this and that about computers, trying to make himself sound like what he's talking about nobody knows...He wound up buying an HTC G1 Dream. But the reality is, 6 months before Android phone was released I mentioned the new Android platform to him and he had no idea what I was talking about.
My friend loves to pride himself as if he is THE TECHNO-GEEK. But again, the realty is he is more like a 12 year old boy wanting to be in the in crowd of computer geeks. That's why he bought the Android HTC phone. Because its "geeky" and "cool" like that.
I am not saying the phone is not a good phone. I know it is a good alternative at this point to the iPhone and will only get better with time. But these TECHNO-GEEK wannabe cool people by having the Android which somehow makes them smarter and cooler...
Turned out after having the phone for a while he wasn't that happy with it.
