I've come accross a repository where someone intends to work on Droid:

But no sign of it being official. The licensing issue is still not
clarified: http://code.google.com/p/droid-font-hacks/issues/detail?id=2

With the delay on the Android release, does anyone has more information
on this? Aside from the promise of a Apache license of course? Has
anyone approached them to advocate a font-specific license that would
engage more designers?

BTW there's a video by the designer hired to work on this font family
over here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxbzE_JAs3A
