Difference Between Android & Droid Mobile, What is?

Do the terms DROID & ANDROID differs or are the same and means same? If there is some actual or literal difference in the meanings of the two?

Bit confusing for a newbie, but interesting for a veteran : )

Well, in simple terms Droid are the (hardware) mobiles made by Motorola which Verizon-wireless sells and also by HTC Droid Eris,

Google Android is one of the latest & popular software, i.e. mobile operating system (OS) by Google which comes handy with many mobile phones and mobile devices,

Android is the Linux kernel based, its applications are written in Java language, it can also run app written in C language, this is a product of an Open Handset Alliance,

... so Droid brand hardware are primarily Motorola made cell phones + HTC's Droid Eris; Verizon Wireless sells them and they are having software of Google's Android mobile OS with them,

{Moto Droid cell phones are sold in Canada / Europe with the name Motorola Milestone}

I think, this may give some sigh of relief now : ) as we have cracked the mobile puzzle, got the solution for this amazing cell phone knot and got to know that Android and Droid are bit different notions and not the same and one concept but with one thing in common, i.e. Android OS!
