Uh...have you thought about an iPhone (I know, ya'll are going to hate me on this one...but if someone doesn't disable bluetooth when not in use...has wifi on while not connected to a network...stock launcher...and a picture of her kid as her wallpaper...ya, she's not exactly tech-savvy).
Ya, I don't like iPhones. Droids are better.
Razr. Get the Razr.
What about that Galaxy Droid you keep going on and on about?
(Resisting the Android/Droid argument) Eh. Not really something you'd be into, I promise.

She didn't buy it.
Got the Nexus. And returned it a few days later for the Razr.
(Damn I'm good).

Other than
Not a single one.

Literally every single other person that I work around has an iPhone.
Not joking. Her...with her stock Razr. Me...with my Unlocked...Rom'd...Kernel'd...Tweaked-the-hell-out. And a bunch of iPhone owners who couldn't tell me anything hardware related about their phones if I asked. (Except maybe that it has a "retina"
I have nobody to nerd-out with =[.

I think I'm actually the only person I know who is rooted.
Except my mother...who I told a while back...that her Droid X had an "Update" available.
Put her on MIUI. LOL!
At least she's smart enough to realize that Android > iOS. (Even though I am an iPad owner :P )

A bunch of my friends went to my local store to get the Gnex, but apparently they didn't have any in stock :/ so they all got SGSII.
