Most people call all flying discs "Frisbees" even though they are technically only a "Frisbee" if made by the Frisbee Company. But if the person you are talking to knows to what you refer then I have a better question- Who cares?!



    If someone asked about my phone I call it an "LG Ally" and after they give me the "I've-never-heard-of-it" look I explain it as an "Android" because it uses the Android OS.


    You must not live in the south. Every soda down here is referred to as Coke. It's rather maddening sometimes.

    None of the above. The R2D2 phone is a marketing ploy meant for the upcoming 3D re-releases of the Star Wars movies/franchise. Now, that's going to confuse EVERYONE! There are quite a few lines about Droids in those movies. Back when car phones were called "CB Radios"... and CDs were called "8-tracks."

    Wow this is 3 minutes of my life I can never have back from reading this.



    Motorola, and HTC are the only ones on the Verizon network that have designated their phones as "Droid"



    But I bet Samsung would beg to differ that they are "official droid" phones.

    Pretty sure HTC would beg to differ that the HTC Evo shouldn't be classified at a "Droid" phone.



    It's only called Droid cause of its naming, not because it's better.
