For example, which (if any) of these questions are appropriate? These questions are specific to android phones, but not android-related.

  • Questions about Droid spec
  • Questions about connecting Samsung Kies with Galaxy S
  • Questions about HTC Desire battery life
  • Questions about comparing two android phones

I would think it's perfectly appropriate. Android is defined by the range of available options there is; and not as drones of unified, all-encompassing, all-similar of device. There is a range of Androids with touchscreen and slide-out keyboards; or touchpad and directional pad; and often what's the best answer for one device configuration is totally inappropriate for another.

An equivalent question would be: "are language-specific programming questions appropriate in StackOverflow?"
