Verizon plans on midnight parties and early opening for some stores thanks to R2-D2 DROID 2
You don't want to be alone when you head over to Verizon to buy the limited edition DROID 2 R2-D2 model, do you? No, you want to be with other like-minded Star Wars fans who know that Jar-Jar does not refer to the glass container where you can find the pickles-pickles. In order to get the camaraderie associated with this event, Big Red is holding midnight parties at some locations so that when the clock strikes 12 and the calendar changes to the 30th, the Star Wars Special Edition handset can be purchased.

It looks like Verizon is limiting this event to stores on the West Coast. A list of stores that are changing their hours for the launch can be found below. Some of the locations will be open at midnight, others will be opening at 6am on the 30th. We suggest calling your local store to see what the plans are for the launch.

Who cares? VZW is acting like this is the release of the first iPhone. When you launch a flagship/special phone every 3 months, people become immune to any excitement.

If you're a true Star Wars fan then Jar-Jar doesn't exist. He just doesn't.

You all must not understand the nerd herd of sci fi and star wars........these are people who dress up standing hours in line for movies and releases and what ever has anything to do with star wars. This phones going to sale out they only have a limited amount of them. This is being treated like any other star wars release with fan fair.....do you forget who created star wars their nerd god. Has that man ever been part of something that’s not made into a big deal. DUH
