  Android - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
An android is an advanced form of robot, equipped with a self-aware artificial intelligence and made with the purpose to imitate humanoid lifeforms in at least rudimentary physical form.
Androids began replacing other forms of robots in the late 22nd century when it became clear that a more lifelike appearance was needed for successful interactions with Humans.
When the androids attempted to abduct the USS Enterprise, the crew was able to escape by discovering the weakness of these androids; their minds are so highly logical that by intentionally acting as illogically and unpredictably as possible, the androids could be overloaded and incapacitated.

 Android Summary
Once one admits that androids have internal states that are properly described as pain, then it would seem that one should accord this pain the same moral significance as one does the pain of other sentient creatures.
If androids become moral persons then it is not only morally appropriate but required that humans should respond to the death of an android with the same set of moral responses as they do a human person; for instance, with horror, grief, and remorse.
The term android can mean either one of these, while a cyborg ("cybernetic organism" or "bionic man") would be a creature that is a combination of organic and mechanical parts.

 Dr. Dobb's | <h1>Android: Open-Source Scripting for Testing and Automation</h1> | July 22, 2001
Android's big value-add is the collection of regular expressions it uses to parse useful data out of Xscope's rather voluminous output.
Android's design default is not to record, to give you an opportunity to start and configure other programs that might be necessary for your test — servers, for example.
Android also provides a handy shorthand for typing strings — the type command: send_xevent type {Now is the time for all good men...} which, as you can see, would save a lot of keyup/keydn events, as well as being much easier to edit and maintain.

 World Wide Words: Robodroid
android in science-fiction circles is usually regarded as an artificial person, made of biological material by some process that we might call cloning, genetic engineering or biotechnology (the extent to which they can reproduce is one of the stock themes of the genre).
However, the word android was first used in English in the eighteenth century to refer to an automaton in human shape (it was formed from Greek roots meaning “manlike”).
Android was slower to gain acceptance in the genre, perhaps because the ethos of pulp fiction was unsuited to the issues they raised: the first good android story was probably Clifford Simak’s Time and Again of 1951.
