DROID 2 R2-D2 Special Edition gets the force of 1.2GHz behind it?

DROID 2 R2-D2 Special Edition gets the force of 1.2GHz behind it?
Just a few days ago, we reported that the DROID 2 World Edition would be equipped with a 1.2GHz processor instead of the 1GHz chip on the DROID 2.. So perhaps it shouldn't be too shocking that speculation is growing that the limited R2-D2 edition of the Motorola DROID 2 to launch at the end of this month, will also sport a 1.2GHz chip. How ironic it is that in just a few days, the Star Wars Special Edition of the DROID 2 will escalate the speed race in the cell phone industry.

We also can now clear up a mystery. When the DROID 2 R2-D2 Special Edition was first announced, it was to be sold only online. Now, the word is that each participating store will have 200 handsets in stock and once they are all sold, that will be it for that location. If it is true that the limited edition will have a 1.2GHz processor, demand is going to be high, so if you want this device, your best bet might be to order from Verizon's web site as soon as the clock strikes 12 on September 30th.

Well i dont think people will still think of the Droid 2 as a mid range phone anymore. Atleast not the World Edition.

I've heard a bunch of people say its a mid range phone cuz its not as big or fast as the Droid X. Not me. And I bet everyone who gave me a (-) read my comment wrong. I wasn't saying it was a mid range phone.

I would love to get this phone But it is a fucking moto. I have the pos X I don't think I can buy anything that puts money into moto's pocket

Yeah, that is a very good decision on your part. I'm almost positive the reason the X is still unavailable at many locations two months after launch is due to the fact that it's a POS.

Go to Moto's X forum. I doubt im the only one not happy with the phone. The sad part is mine doesn't have that many hardware problems, like others. Its more software/google/vz shit that has ruined the phone.

you cry babies just HAVE to be able to bitch about something every day, dont you..? you people make me laugh. nothing is ever good enough for you, is it.. SO finally, tell me.... what WOULD it take to satisfy you? dont be shy, let it out. i have the droid x and i have owned EVERY android phone verizon has offered, except the devour, and it is by FAR the best phone they offer in their whole line up. (android and non-android phones) so what is it going to take kids?? when will you finally be happy??

Mr droid, let's see if I can type from the x. First it was easier to login with 2.1the missing/moved , is a pain. I do love how now with 2.2 my gmail does not work all the time. I was very impressed last week when my wifes eris had working gps while I did not. I am done correcting words in this reply since it is next to impossible to with this shit phone. The whole android system is crap. I have to get an app to do anything since the phone has no useable apps but does come with city id. Blockbuster and vz nav. Im done trying to type on this phone

i wouldnt necessarily blame motorola. one of the reasons i refuse to go to vzw is because they load so much bloatware on all of their phones, including android. try and root your phone and put a customrom on it and i bet it will run great.

it is moto and vzws fault as VZW allowed moto to push a crap update that really hurt the phone.

ahhhh people are finally starting to realize that motorola products are just reconstituted feces slapped on an assembly line with a side of herpes (android).

here is an idea...if you hate the X so much why do you still have it? My X has been great.

i love android and i love motorola, but i am not geeky nerd enough to tote around something that sports queer star wars all over it. sorry, my glasses are not that thick.

So you aren't geeky enough for Star Wars but you are enough of a douchebag to make fun of it on a phone blog? Grow up.

15. XxVerbalxX unregistered

take you tampon out and man up. it is a geeky phone...otherwise star wars conventions would b full of football stars and bikini models. they're not. they are full of people who need to take a shower and get out of their parents basement. the sterotype is not absolute but it fits. besides the back of the thing looks like an r2d2 i could make out of lego blocks. it doesnt even look cool. its not subtle at all or cool. might as well put the word "GEEK" tattoed on ur head.

12. lols@mrdretard unregistered

Yeah man just so happens half the world is geeky enough to make Star Wars the best selling film franchise of all time. Everyone in the world is a geek I guess. I find the majority of people that still use the term "geeky" have some serious mental issues and are most of the time rather mentalll imbalanced. To top it all off you use the word "queer" which just contributes to my judgement of you. Motorola makes ass merchandise they always have, just look at the razor, krazor, sliver, moto Q. All of them are terrible. The Samsung M610 was by far better than the shitty razor not to mention the most recent incarnation the razor 2. As slim clamshells go the razor was a POS, as are today's motoblur devices. Motorola just takes shits then markets them as the greatest shit since their last steaming pile of shit that they marketed the same way.

what was so shit about them? i had the first black razor for cingular and it was the best non-smartphone ive ever had! but that was a long time ago. I have the original droid now and i love it, the best smartphone ive ever had. yes i root it, overclock, theme, rom, etc... but its still an awesome product! yes i understand that not every phone moto drops is perfect, but the highend ones are great if you know how to work and treat your phone properly. im really sick of seeing people bash bash phones that are awesome but they say are crap because they dont have the intellect to use it correctly or have never used at all! shut up already!

I've seen all the star wars movies, i liked them a lot. the world isnt geeky, its the subset of people who are obcessed with star wars and would sport that bright white POS looking phone (looking mind u) that are. a normal well balanced adult doesnt rock a movie themed phone like that. i stress "like that" as the matrix phone from sprint looked like a sweet ass phone but had some matrix stuff inside. someone who had never even heard of the matrix movies would of thought it looked kinda cool, unlike this thing. go rock some superman underoos and stfu.
