    My mother is the average smartphone user. She can install apps, call people, etc. She had an Android (One of those old ones, dart or something), then she saw a few windows phone ads. She told me she wanted one of those phones like the one I had. I didn't try to convince her or anything, the ads sold her.

    Great to see WP finally catching on to the average user...

    My mother wanted one when she saw and ad for a 900, in pink.

    She was sold instantly.

    My sister doesn't really know tech, I just hook her up with things when I find sales and she pays her part of the cell phone bill like a sheep, haha.

    But, I told her yesterday that since I was getting jacked around with my Yellow 920, I was going to get her an early upgrade and I sent her a pic of the 5 different colors and told her to choose.

    She popped back "Are those the new Windows Phone 920? I saw a commercial for that, it is supposed to have a great camera and wireless charging!!! I want one! I want red!"

    She has an HTC Titan right now and probably couldn't tell you the MP of the camera, so not new/scared of Windows Phone, but I was surprised to hear her know features of the phone.

    ^ The celeb ads probably had something to do with her interest in them.
