Motorola DROID R2-D2 Edition receives a new year price drop to $39.99 through Amazon
Was the initial $249.99 price for a piece of Star Wars memorabilia just too much for your blood; despite being graced with the perennial moniker of R2-D2 attached to it?

Well, Amazon has something special to ring in the new year for those die hard fans of the beloved movie series. From the looks of it, the Motorola DROID R2-D2 Special Edition is being given that much needed Amazon love as its 2-year on-contract price for new customers has been reduced to a mere $39.99! That's particularly substantial when you consider the $199.99 price tag you'd be facing when purchasing it directly from Verizon.

Naturally, that's a spectacular deal since it includes a few extra goodies over the Motorola DROID 2. Sure it may not be the latest and greatest thing out there on the market, but for those who want to flaunt their love for Star Wars, you can't beat noticing the easy to swallow price it's sporting right now.

However, existing customers with eligible upgrades are going to pay a bit more at $99.99. Lastly, even though you can't beat the pricing, the handset is actually on back-order for about 2 to 3 weeks – but luckily, they're throwing in free shipping with your purchase.
