Best Answer

Andros-Man, Roid-like or similar- an artificial human-like creature as distinct from a robot which has metallic skin and is often only vaguely human-like like those in Star Wars or Lost In Space. Androids could (blend in) with humans and if used by ( who is to say they are not) by an intelligence agency-well they could have serious possibilities. androids, like UFOs are pretty much an ( Above Eyes Only) topic, at least officially, Science Fiction novels- some really good have been done on the theme. By the way the word is derived from two Greek words, andros and the roid suffix.

It could also mean Google's mobile operating system, which is named Android.

Does nook color have android I watched a couple videos on youtube and they say it runs on android So does it means it has android like i can download apps on it or does it mean something else?

While the Nook does run Android, as yet Barnes & Noble has not enabled third-party applications on the device (either from Android Marketplace or from a B&N app store). There has been some speculation that the device will transition into a full-featured tablet in 2011, with greater flexibility to run apps, but few expect it to allow all Android apps (such as an Android version of Amazon's Kindle Reader).
