    Hey everyone, my mom just bought a Nexus S 4G at my recommendation. She's no dummy, but she often needs some help with things.

    She's asked a few questions here and there, but I'm going down to visit her next weekend, so I've told her to just leave things alone until I get there, and we'll sit down and do everything together.

    I've had an EVO 4G for about a year, so I'm comfortable with Android, but I wanted to see if any Nexus owners have anythings I should point out to my mom, or anything you think is particularly useful that all Nexus owners should know that I may not know as an EVO owner.

    Thanks!

    it should be pretty straight forward, especially if you are already using an android phone. Just be careful, you might get hooked on the pure google and get reeled in.

    Unless your Mom is into rooting and flashing ROMs on the Nexus, there is no material difference in how it runs with respect to the Evo except the Nexus has no Sense on it.

    And yes, your Mom is very cool!

    I'm hesitant to say this on here, but I almost think a quick interactive tutorial on phone activation would be a good thing for them to include. I got the hang of the soft keys fairly quick, but it took me a little longer to get used to Android than it did for me to get used to webOS. Some of the lingo might also be a little confusing even for those who are "no dummies". I know they have the little Home Screen Tips widget on activation...they could just add a little info to that.

    Can you and everyone else asking about his mom and all that stop being weirdos? Seriously, the guy asked for some advice to give to his mom, he didn't ask for men to post to show their interest in his mother.

    Really guys? This isn't a dating forum. Get over yourselves.

    How's your mom?

    Point out the NFC chip and future Google Wallet app. As far as everything else it really doesn't do much more than yours does; minus, the bloatware and sense. Also, 2.3.4 enabled Google Talk video and audio chat. Maybe she'll want to video chat with you to your computer, lol.

    And point out she'll get ICS at the end of the year; and, you probably won't. OR your might. I don't know. CM7.

    O, and make sure you point out you can't remove Google Earth; for whatever godly reason Google has for that. L O L!.

    And also, paypal is coming out, if you missed it, with nfc function to "give" money to a friend or whomever with another NFC capable phone.

    L O L! Look out.

    I would like to see Chase add NFC support to their app. As you can person to person via email. NFC would be a nice addition to that; and, would be nice to see them add NFC card emulation to their app. Add a pin to the app, log in, emulate your cards straight from chase. No middle man.

    Well is literary up to us (being the only ones with NFC capable Android devices in this market) to enthusiastically embrace this new technology when active so it can filter down to other devices and institutions.

    Yeah, I'd love to get CM7, but I was a dummy and didn't root before I updated to GB. I'm patiently waiting for root capabilities to be restored.

    I'm not all that concerned with getting ICS since I've noticed a bit of a performance hit with GB, but I really want 2.3.4. Mostly so I can video chat with my mom...
