Google Chairman Eric Schmidt published step-by-step instructions on Sunday for people switching from the iPhone to an Android device.
Schmidt penned a post that he shared publicly on Google+ titled “Eric’s Guide: Converting from iPhone to Android.” In the detailed note, Schmidt writes, “Many of my iPhone friends are converting to Android. The latest high-end phones from Samsung (Galaxy S4), Motorola (Verizon Droid Ultra) and the Nexus 5 (for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) have better screens, are faster, and have a much more intuitive interface. They are a great Christmas present to an iPhone user!”
He continues: “Like the people who moved from PCs to Macs and never switched back, you will switch from iPhone to Android and never switch back as everything will be in the cloud, backed up, and there are so many choices for you.”
The guide then offers a four-step process including how to set up your Android phone, update your iPhone or iPad, connect your music to Google on your Mac, and remove a SIM from the iPhone to place in the Android.
A wordy Schmidt offers a ton of advice on how to make the switcheroo. Next up on advice from Schmidt is an upcoming management advice book titled No Adult Supervision Required: How To Build Successful 21st Century Companies, which is due out in the fall of 2014.
