So all Droids are Android phones, but not all Android phones are Droid.

Life is easier if you just drop the term "Droid" from your vocabulary. It has become meaningless and confusing.
Thanks for this clarification because I was confused. Also, this Android phone is operating on a Google OS platform correct? That is, it's an OS and phone system designed by Google?

If this is the case, you'd think Chrome would work seamlessly?
