    Finally been holding this in all day.. I had a training this morning that I learned this. VZW and google have teamed up alot bigger than people think. VZW also paid an 'unnamed' company about 70mil to buy the name Android. They also have exclusive rights on the os from google.. i.e. no other device can get the 2.0 yet, it will be released to all other devices late 2010 like this time late.. also when 'flaun' is launched by vzw (first always first vzw will always get the new release to release on phones about a year in advance) no other phone will get it for roughly 1 year....just wanted to share thanks for asking

    Josh you sure about the paying for the name Android. The term was trademarked by Lucasfilm Ltd. back in the days when George Lucas did Star Wars. Not saying it's not true, just would be surprised if George Lucas decided to sell the name for $70 million.

    'unnamed' company.... and maybe the lady today said billion.. i was kinda getting tired of watching videos that had been on youtube for a week i am googling right now to try and find more info but if you look and see who made the droid does commercial to I believe it was lucas film.. and yes the one thing I am sure of is that VZW now owns the name android


    edit- everything I have found so far just says its trademarked by lucas films.. and under license to vzw, but I was told today that it the name was bought.. maybe this is what they meant to say.. I am kind of angry and will be making some phone calls next week to find out for sure
