The Difference Between DROID and Android [FYI]

One of the most annoying things in the world is having a conversation somewhere along these lines:

“Hey I’m thinking of picking up one of those DROIDs”

“Oh yeah, which one?”

“Either the Evo or a Galaxy S”

People! DROID and Android are two different things. DROID is a brand name which refers to a certain group of Android phones on Verizon’s network. Android is the operating system that powers phones. So referring to all Android phones as DROIDs is like referring to all shoes as Nikes.

That is all.
