Netflix has been quietly adding compatibility for more devices to its Android application, with the number now up to 25. The vast majority of those devices are smartphones, with most tablets left off the list.
Of the devices listed, 23 are smartphones, and only two are tablets, both of which are the recently announced Android tablets from Lenovo. Most of the smartphones on the list are CDMA models, with the T-Mobile G2, HTC Doubleshot (myTouch 4G Slide), Motorola ATRIX 4G, Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy S 4G, and Samsung Nexus S being the only GSM phones supported. Also on the list is the yet to be released Motorola DROID Bionic, so we expect Netflix to be running on that when it eventually hits the market.
You can see the full list of supported phones and tablets in the Android Market now. And if you happen to have a supported device, grab the app and enjoy the unlimited streaming you get for $2, which will be going up to $8 come September (or now if you don't happen to have a Netflix account already).
