Android: 55.5% Run Android 2.1, Only 3.3% Run Android 2.2 Android is divided between four different versions: Android 1.5, Android 1.6, Android 2.1, and Android 2.2.

Unconfirmed: Motorola Droid 2 To Launch August 12, Special R2-D2 Edition Possible With all the chatter surrounding the Motorola Droid 2 as of late, it isn't surprising the next rumor is an earlier launch date.

It looks like the phone slides up to reveal a portrait style QWERTY keyboard that looks awfully similar to the...

HTC: Only 0.016% of Droid Eris Owners Complained About Reception

HTC: Only 0.016% of Droid Eris Owners Complained About Reception Steve Jobs, with a bit of a smirk on his face, announced only 0.55% of all iPhone 4 owners called AppleCare regarding antenna or reception issues.
