Ascender created a dedicated website on the Droid font family,
I copy some of the text of the website:
"The Droid fonts included with the Android SDK are distributed
under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
Ascender is working with Open Handset Alliance members
and other partners to modify and customize the Droid fonts.
Some of these new versions may be added to the Android SDK
under the Apache License, while other versions will remain proprietary
and offered by Ascender under a commercial license.
In addition to custom versions of the Droid fonts, Ascender
is developing "Pro" versions which will be available for purchase/download
by creative professionals under an commercial font license.
View the Ascender End User License Agreement for the Droid Pro Fonts.
The "Pro" versions will be in the OpenType format with additional
typographic features. The initial release has Old Style Figures,
and more enhancements are planned for the future.
New weights, such as Droid Sans Condensed,
are also in development.
If you have any questions regarding the font license
or custom type development, please contact us."
The Droid Pro fonts that Ascender is developing have the following additions:
* Additional styles and weights
* Character set extensions
* Enhanced language support
* Advanced OpenType typographic features
