You’d have to be in complete denial to think that pop culture includes anything less than an obsession when it comes to celebrities. People want to know everything about them, from what time they brush their teeth in the morning to where they shop to whatever other trivial task you can conjure up.
Android is no different. Remember in February 2009 when Shaquille O’Neal met some Tweeters in real life and showed off his Android phone? We don’t often report on CelebriDroids like this, but a Tweet by Justin Timberlake not only identified him as an Android user but also opened the door for some interesting Android speculation:
Timberlake, known Sony spokesperson, appears to be holding an Xperia X10. Of course, that raises an even more troubling question — Twitter for Android works only on devices with OS 2.1 and above, so the X10 running its current version of 1.6 wouldn’t cut the mustard. Unless Justin is getting special treatment from Sony with an Eclair device? Our heart just skipped a beat.
Speculation aside, we’re kind of intrigued by this whole CelebriDroid thing. How many can we pull out of the woodworks? Think we can find any CelebriPhandDroids? If you’ve got photographic or other evidence of celebrity Android users, please send it in!
Xperia X10 has Twitter built into Timescape.
Definitely could be built into the phone or Twitter could be beta testing their official app for 1.6 android.

Midwest raper tech n9ne was tweeting about how he just got the Evo and was messing around with the peep twitter app that it comes with about a week ago.
“Midwest raper”. Typo?
Do you guys really think Timberlake could tell the difference between Android 1.6 or 2.1? Its more like,”hey justin great work and here’s one of our newest and coolest phones.”
You never know. He could in fact know just as much about Android as any of us. This could be the next which celebrities have “sidekicks” trend.
You know he is cookin’ ROMs for that thing.
Funny chop jobs!
Mick Foley from TNA was seen on Impact using a G1 a while back.
