Android is hooked up with your Google account. To see the search history that Google has you have to check there:

https://accounts.google.com/Login?continue=https://history.google.com/history&hl=en&service=hist&ltmpl=gh

Login with your Google account and it will show the search history.

Normally you can see the history within the settings of the specific browser on the droid unless the settings have been specifically set to not save them. The above answer from Anthony will not just show you history from your android if you use your android account on your computer. For more information you would have to provide the Android software release and also the browser if it is not the one provided by phone/device.

Depending on the version of Android installed it might vary a little but generally this would be the locations of that information:

(email address) Settings --> Accounts --> Google
(Software release version) Settings --> About Phone --> Android Version

The browser would be the stock android browser if it is just called Browser.

Information is temporarily unavailable.

Check back here for a list of your top searches, a look at your search activity, and other interesting tidbits. You don't have much in your history yet, but try again in a couple days after you've done a few searches.

In the mean time, you may want to check out the Google Zeitgeist, which shows global search patterns and trends that you may find interesting.

Your search history is currently empty.

Apparently it seems that there is no search history. Perhaps these phones never were used to search for anything and there is nothing to track.
