    Welcome! Good to have you with us. Check out the app section in the Forum. Yes, Droid is a derivative of Android.

    To clear this up a Droid and an Android powered device are two different things, there are currently 4 Droids (5 if you count the HTC Incredible) most will agree if it was not made by Motorola it is not a Droid although the HTC Dinc clearly says DROID on the box the other 4 devices are The Original Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, and the upcoming Droid Pro all made by Motorola :)

    Everything else is just powered by the Android O/S and not a DROID

    The name of the Forum is a give away. The Droid OS is Android and we try to extent support to all areas. Do you need something specific?
