    ++1 people who know the difference are the minority.

    I like the Droid lineup, Droid sounds cool to me. The only thing I don't like about it are the over-the-top commercials that have absolutely nothing to do with the phone itself. If people want to call every Android phone a Droid then that's fine. The Droid lineup put Android on the map so I can't imagine the name going away anytime soon.

    Agree. People know Droids. Most don't know Galaxy Nexus 1, 2, S, or whatever version they're on now.

    I, for one, couldn't care less what Verizon or anyone else calls the Android phones. If calling all of them Droids helps to expand the Android base, then fine with me. My Inc2 is branded a Droid, but I have never referred to it as a Droid. To me, it is an Incredible 2, period. If someone want to call it a Droid, fine. If he wants to call it an Incredible 2, fine. Anything but calling it an iPhone. Now that I think of it, half of the population would call it an iPhone if it were not for the Droid brand. Just like everyone used to call my Southwind motorhome a Winnebago or all tissues a Kleenex. We should thank Verizon for differentiating Android phones from the iPhone. It just amazes me how people get irritated by the most insignificant things.

    I agree that "Droid Does" really launched Android to where it is today, however I believe that belongs to the Original Droid. Every other "Droid" afterwards (except perhaps for Droid 1 sequels) doesn't really identify with the "Droid" label. Even if it "Droid" was helpful to the Android base to begin with, I think it is detrimental to it now. Android is big enough now to have it's own identity, rather than being mixed up with Verizon's branding. So if someone asks you if you "have a Droid" or mixes up an Android phone in conversation, please correct them. Plus, it just sounds stupid at this point. It's like if you call a relative in Europe and told them that you where in the United States, and they said, "Oh really? So you're in New York?" Also, I really feel that branding certain phones as "Droids," Verizon is tricking people into signing with them/buying certain phones. Maybe we're smarter, and maybe people know that they can get "Droids" through other carriers too. But, I bet there are a handful of I guarantee there are a handful of customers that went to VZ because they have "Droids." It's the same way I'm sure that Verizon gets people to subscribe to VZ Navigator for $10 extra a month when Google Maps is there, is better, and is FREE!

    Thought you were being serious or had a case of amnesia.

    Also if it weren't for the Droid name, we all wouldn't be on this board right now
