What is a droid?


Droid is a common abbreviation for "android" that may refer to the Google Android operating system (and its devices) or actual androids, like real-life humanoid robots or Star Wars androids. While it is an oft-used abbreviation, mostly techies and sci-fi enthusiasts use it.

An example of when you might encounter "droid" is when your friend is discussing the pros and cons of their new Android tablet. Or, a fellow Star Wars fan may be outlining why C-3PO is the most annoying droid in the galaxy.

Whoa, be nice. They have feelings, too
Uhh, hopefully not
