Is Google Android Logo Based on Atari Lynx title ‘Gauntlet: The Third Encounter’

A reader has uncovered a secret about the origin of the Android logo. “It appear that the logo was based upon a character in the 1990 game “Gauntlet: The Third Encounter”. The game was never really a huge hit, replaced a year after release (according to Wikipedia, anyway) by “Gauntlet III: The Final Quest”. Regardless, the character in the original game shows many similarities to the Android logo — “right down to the antennae, dotted eyes, general size and shape, and even the strip which cuts across the midsection of the bot. Oh yeah, and the character is named Android”.”
