Android more and more these days seems to be synonymous to the Star Wars Universe. We first saw Verizon name its initial Android phone as the Motorola Droid. A "Droid," is another name for robots in the Star Wars Universe. Since the Droid name and branding is owned by Lucasfilm, Verizon must license the name. Soon after, to celebrate 25 years of "The Empire Strikes Back," Verizon and Motorola created an R2-D2 branded Droid 2. Keeping up?
To add more to the Android and Star Wars camp -- Japanese carrier NTT Docomo is advertising the Samsung Galaxy S along side the Sith Lord, Darth Vader. It's an odd commercial, no doubt. Vader in this ad, isn't the Vader we think we know -- he runs through flocks of birds, dances in the club, enjoys boat rides, and more. Even though the commercial doesn't make any sense, our favorite Sith Lord is welcome to the Android club. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
