The Netflix APK has been pulled from a prototype of the LG Revolution, the first Android smartphone to offer full Netflix support, by a guy named Alex Smith. And thanks to Mr. Smith’s handiwork, the Netflix APK is now readily available to anyone who wants to give it a whirl, but you’ll only be able to use it to manage your Netflix queue and browse movies. The app alerts you that it “could not reach the Netflix service,” if you try to stream a movie, which is probably due to the DRM issues that have been responsible for a full Netflix on Android client delay in the first place. Netflix has yet to publicly disclose when a fully functioning client would be available for the Android platform.
