Yup, people do love Android: Eric Schmidt's claimed that 200,000 Android phones are sold every day, with market tracker NPD stating that 1/3 of all smartphones sold between April - June were Androids—mostly Motorola Droids. [Reuters, Reuters]



But how many of those know it is an Android phone? Alot of people I know/work with who have them dont even know or care what the OS is. Or what the full potential of the phone is.

"Oh yeah, is that an Android phone?"
