8. Think of an Android phone as a handheld computer that also makes phone calls.
I use mine to do everything from web-surfing to checking email, Facebook, Twitter, keeping my calendar (better than any day-planner!), I've got games, a calculator, I've got my music (yes, it doubles as an iPod), it has Google Maps and GPS, so it does a great impression of a Garmin or TomTom. It's got a camera, you can take still-photos or videos with it. A milllion and one uses!
