I get a lot of emails from people who want to know if it's possible to install Android spy software (or any other type of spy phone software) without physical access to the cell phone.
The quick answer is NO.
You cannot remotely install Android spy software because you MUST have physical access to the Android device. There is absolutely no way around this. Not a single Android spy software vendor on the market today (this also includes BlackBerry & iPhone spy software), is selling any type of mobile spy software that has remote installation.
So what should you do if you cannot get physical access to the target phone? Definitely don't waste your money on any type of Android spy software. I repeat, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. I know there are few sites out there claiming that you can remotely install spy phone software for all cell phones such as Android, BlackBerry, or iPhone. Some even say you can use technologies such as Bluetooth. Do not believe what they advertise. If you do, its your loss.
My recommendation is that you either find a way to get access to the target phone so you can install Android spy software directly on the cell phone, or you look for alternate ways to monitor them. For example, what two technology items are most used today? I'd say cell phones and computers. If you can't get access to one, go for the other one. Any google search for "PC Spy Software" will turn up at least 40-50 different PC Spy vendors. My personal favorite is Sniper Spy, because it has a cool live monitoring feature and it does have remote installation.
Other options include Google's new Latitude application which allows you to track the movements of a person using Google Maps. However, they will have to 'opt in' to being tracked, so if you want to do this secretly, there is always GPS devices you can place on or in their car. You can also find out who they call most often via looking at their cell phone records (if you have access to them), and then do a reverse phone look up using many of the reverse phone look up services, such as Cell Phone Snoop.
Now you know, that no matter what you read online, there is no way to remotely install Android spy software, but at least there are other ways to get the information you want. Remember, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on cell phone spy products that claims you can remotely install it.

Motorola DROID seems to be the hot new cell phone at the moment. The early reports indicate that the DROID might be the real deal and could potentially put up a real fight against the iPhone. Seems everything the iPhone doesn't have, the DROID cell phone is proudly announcing it has. Well there is one thing both the iPhone and DROID have in common...... spy phone software!
Although the DROID cell phone is new, it's running the Android OS, which means you can indeed install spy phone software on a DROID cell phone and create your very own DROID spy phone. I've not had the pleasure to test out Android spy software on a DROID phone, but assuming that everything works as expected, you'll be able to do all the fun stuff such as:
GPS Tracking - This will enable you to easily locate the special someone who has Android spy software installed on their DROID phone.
Read & Recover Deleted Text Messages - It doesn't matter if your target has deleted the messages as soon as they read them. If you have Android spy software installed, you'll get access to all incoming and outgoing text messages sent or received on the DROID cell phone.
View Call Logs - No more wondering who is calling or who your partner is calling from their cell phone. Install Android spy software on their DROID phone, and you'll get to see everything. Who they called, who called the, and what name is associated to the number (that is stored in the DROID's address book) in the call logs.
All of this for a bit more than a dollar a day. Right now, there is only ONE place to buy Android spy software. The company (Mobile Spy) is one of the leaders in spy phone technology, and the first to release spy software for Android. In fact, they were also the first to release iPhone spy software. They definitely know their stuff.

Dell officially announced their intent to enter the competitive smartphone industry.
Although this has probably been one of the worst kept secrets in the smartphone industry, at least we now have the "official" word from Dell. Even though their plans to start in China and Brazil, will not put a smile on Dell fans in the US, at least we know that it will only be a matter of time until we start to see them trickle in.
The best news of Dell's announcement was that they will use Android as their OS of choice. This is fantastic news for all of us Android fans, and even better news for anyone who may want to eventually spy on someone using a Dell cell phone. With the recent announcement that Android spy software is now available, and as long as Dell continues to use the Android OS, we'll definitely see Dell spy phones floating around.
For more information on the Dell announcement, here are a few links.
