Dummy units of the R2-D2 version of the DROID 2 begin to arrive in stores
With a week until online sales commence for the R2-D2 version of the Motorola DROID 2, Verizon stores appear to be getting in dummy units of the special looking smartphone. Although it's not in functioning form, it does provide us some good insights as to what the actual handset will look like.

As you can tell, the rear of the phone is fashioned in similar style to the everyone's lovable R2-D2 unit. There also appears to be a silver metallic looking bezel outlining the handset – which does add to its premium construction.

Even though this will be seen as a potential option for possible owners, we all have to keep in mind about the slightly refreshed version of the Motorola DROID 2 that's expected to come some time soon as well – decisions, decisions.

I used to take the guts out my real phone and put them in dummies. I went from the gray LG env to the green and orange. I even did once for a cracked screen. I was thinking about trying it for my beat up Droid 1 and selling it mint.

Ugly ugly ugly! It's like giving a Mexican a brand new Cadillac and a roll of duct tape and saying "have fun!".

Pretty sad that the picture on the box looks cooler than the actual phone.

kinda cool looking.. except for that faggy gay ass "star wars" crap on it. the geeks and nerds will have a field day in a circle jerk with each other as soon as they have this phone. add an extra piece of tape to the nose bridge of those thick glasses.
