We all know the word "Droid" is short for Android, which is the software our phones run on this forum, whether they are made by Motorola, HTC, etc. Why is it that Motorola was able to take this name, and call their latest Android phone by that name? I think it is a little confusing, because sometimes when people see my phone and ask what it is, I'll tell them it is a Droid phone, but then they get a puzzled look and tell me they thought the Droid was more heavy and clunky with a slide out keyboard. Yeah, I can say "it is an Android phone", and I do that sometimes- but it is sort of annoying that Motorola took a nickname that already existed on other Android phones before its time, and called it their own. What's done is done, I suppose- but I'm just curious how Motorola was able to get around trademark and copyright issues, and why Google would allow this in the first place?
