It doesn't matter which Android smartphone you're rocking in your pocket, so long as it's a modern build of Google's open source OS. If it is, you can stream Netflix on it. The latest version of Netflix for Android adds support for all Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices rather than limiting support to select handsets.
That's great news for Android users who didn't own one of the supported devices on what used to be a frustratingly short list. Previously, the only way to enjoy Netflix on a non-supported Android phone with Froyo or Gingerbread was to manually download and install the .APK file from outside the Android Market, and that was a hit-or-miss affair.
Android 2.1 and previous users are still left out in the cold, and perhaps permanently as Froyo and Gingerbread serve over 80 percent of the Android market, according to data from Android Developers. And many of those stuck on older builds are likely nearing the end of their two-year service contracts.
Netflix for Android is every bit as slick as it is on other platforms, allowing you to search and stream movies, and manage your Instant Watch queue.
