Check this out!!!!!
Works perfect and I can just snap it on
Awesome! Now I have to make one
Some constructive criticism though.... Next time glue the case to the inside of the bracket. That way the weight of the phone is over the center of the tripod instead of hanging over the side of it. Weight in middle = good
... although with something this light it hardly matters. Nice job!
I'm actually an iPhone 4 user (I know, I know), but this Tripod that I picked up for $7 works awesome with my iPhone and my buddies Droid ... it's adjustable. The top piece comes off so that you can use it with any tripod, not just the mini-tripod that it comes with.
Here's the eBay link:
... and a photo of my phone in the adjustable mount:

I have successfully mounted my Droid X onto a tripod by doing the following. I had a body glove case for my Droid X that I didn't like because it didn't provide as much protection as the Otter Box so it was just laying around. The body Glove case has a belt clamp on the back. I simply removed the mounting plate from my tripod, took out the main mounting screw that would normally screw into the camcorder and replaced it with a 2" long flathead machine screw. Insert the mounting plate back onto the tripod. Presuming you have put your Droid into the body glove case, just clamp the belt clamp over the screw. You could add some velcro to the bottom to reinforce the attachment if you wanted. I used a small lightweight SONY tripod but any tripod will work. I can pan, tilt, raise, etc... Works great
I know this is an old thread, but I was searching for the answer myself. What I've been using is a standard microphone stand with a soft plastic clip - my Droid X2 fits perfectly in the gap of the microphone clip, but the stand itself is very limiting for such things as panning.
Today I found an adapter that will allow me to screw the microphone clip onto a standard tripod. It adapts the 1/4" - 20 female to 5/8" - 27 male, witch matches the male threads of the tripod mount to the female threads of the microphone clip. I've ordered it ($16.85 US with shipping) and will see how it works. For anyone with shop skills, as mentioned before, it would be pretty easy to fabricate such an adapter. Google "Windtech M7 adapter" if you want to find one.
