Netflix app for Android officially arrives on another 3 additional devices
Needless to say that there are quite some happy Android users out there now that Netflix is finally available, but as we all know, its initial roll out was limited to a few select devices. Granted that there are some workarounds in getting it to run with other handsets, it's now officially available with another 3 additional devices.

The exclusive list of devices gaining access to Netflix’s app for Android include the original one and only Motorola DROID, LG Revolution, and the Casio G'zOne Commando – all of which are on Verizon’s lineup. Out of the bunch, it goes to show how much respect is given to the original Motorola DROID – especially considering that it’s one of the older, but still respectable Android handsets out there.

Still, it’s uncertain when other handsets will be getting in with the festivities, but if you simply can’t wait any longer, we’d suggest checking out the alternative routes out there. In fact, the process is much more simple than what you'd expect.

why the original Droid? Its old and out of date, there's newer, better handsets that can run this but they wont port, why?

Because it's running vanilla froyo (mmmm) so it takes zero effort to port apps to it.

People complain about the dumbest things, all it takes is a little thought before you start mouthing off. This is why some people tend to get into trouble speak without thinking about things first...let this be a lesson to you. I'm still on the 3rd lesson, so I'm not perfect either.

Still can't believe this isn't out for the galaxy s line, come on already, theyve sold over 2 million of then between the carriers, and they have identical specs, this should have been one of the first phones that this was released for.

A under two year old phone and their owners who don't fork out $600 every year for a new phone gets some respect.Take a lesson from Netflix Poopcap Plants vs Zombies developers.

Why they specifically select these three phones. Is there any reason for that?
