Netflix Android supports future phones, tablets

An update to the Netflix for Android app (Android Market) has given the OS support not just for more current devices but two new ones as well. The movie streaming app should recognize the Motorola Droid Bionic when it's announced and ships. Whether or not it gets any extra benefits from the 540x960 screen isn't clear, but it should stream over LTE for those with large enough bandwidth caps.

Also new is the promised support for the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet and its business counterpart, the ThinkPad tablet. Both are the first Android 3 devices and first Android tablets of any kind to get an official Netflix blessing.

The update goes on to add support for both the HTC Thunderbolt and Samsung Droid Charge. All of the additions expand the total list of Netflix-capable Android hardware to 24 devices, which now covers much of what's in the market today but limits most older phones.
