R2-D2 version of the DROID 2 to be sold online only, starting September 30th

This article contains unofficial information.

R2-D2 version of the DROID 2 to be sold online only, starting September 30th
Verizon has put up a web site for the R2-D2 limited edition of the Motorola DROID 2 . The site lets you leave your e-mail address to receive updates on the handset and you can also try to unlock special Star Wars content on the site by following R2-D2 at the DroidLanding Twitter site. To get to the web page, simply click on the source link.

The special "Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Special Edition Phone" will be available starting September 30th for online sales only. The limited edition model will ship with special Star Wars sounds, wallpaper, video, artwork and movie stills. While we have no idea what the device will look like, we earlier reported that the phone would show a picture of R2-D2 on the back. The tie in with the storied motion picture franchise is not surprising considering that Verizon has licensed the use of the name "DROID" from Lucasfilm Ltd. Perhaps those of you who have been trained very well can perform a Jedi mind trick and get Big Red to mail you one of these beauties.

There's also a special edition "Steve-o" iPhone being release. It has a silhouette of Steve jobs profile on the back and is said to be the only one that works. Supply has been shortened to 1 special edition phone, since they couldn't duplicate whatever it was that made the phone work. Start the bidding ladies and gentleman. On the real this is really creative of Verizon thinking outside the box.

"These aren't the droids you're looking for..." So, If a Verizon customer wanted this phone, then they would be wise to refrain from purchasing it until then, rather than getting all giddy wid it and buying it now....I hope the supply for the phone is better than the incredible and droid x...

i personally could care less about this stupid star wars theme, I hate the name droid. the only phone that should have been called the droid was the first one. I understand why there is a line of them, its branding by verizon to get a catchy name out there becasue of the i phones success they needed an edge that people could identify with, but this really kindof takes it too far. I mean what demographic are they trying to reach here ? 40+ somethings that live in their parents basements? sounds backgrouds and movie stills? really ... if thats creative cant wait to see what happens when they actually run out of ideas lmao. aside from the wacky r2d2 thing, the phone is nice and should be a great seller for big red.

I think you misunderstand how much people like R2D2. He's a pretty crazy droid.
