Google's mobile phone and tablet operating system, a direct rival to Apple's iOS. Where iOS is more about simplicity and flashy looks, Android is about customization and control over the hardware that you bought with your hard-earned dollar. (In most cases, less of your dollars, compared to iPhone/iPad)
iPhone owner: Man, I love this new iPhone4. Angry Birds renders great on the new display, but I wish it was just a bit faster.

Android owner: Well, why don't you compile an overclockable kernel then?

iPhone owner: I Google searched for one, and there ain't any.

Android owner: Lol

A robotic creation designed to mimic the look and often behavior of a human male; from the Greek "andr-," meaning "man," and the suffix "-eides," meaning "of the species; alike." Female-form robots are known as "gynoids," although coloquially android or the gender-neutral diminuitive "droid" can refer to both.

Androids are artificially-created beings that are made to look and act like humans - in advanced cases, they are indistinguishable. As machines, they are often shown as possessing stronger logic and reasoning than real humans; however, this logic can also limit them, as they can have difficulty processing emotional concepts or social relationships.
That android is quite something, however, it cost a fortune.
