Maybe you are shopping for an Android Phone or maybe you want a Droid phone. Maybe you wonder…
What the heck is a droid phone?
What the heck is an android phone?
Aren’t they the same thing – droid, android?
Those are good questions, and if you asked me I would have said I wasn’t sure. Then I ran into www.DroidDoes.com and my impression was that Verizon had made a phone with a purposely close name to Android in order to capitalize on the wildly popular Android phones, but that couldn’t be farther from the case.
WHAT IS A DROID PHONE?
I found the answer through Google on the Wikipedia website, and evidently the Droid is a renamed Motorola Milestone and the name Droid is licensed to Verizon from Lucasfilm (can you say Star Wars?). So, Droid is AN Android phone made by Motorola and exclusively using Verizon Wireless as the provider – especially since Verizon Wireless is the one licensed to use the very cool name DROID.
