Those who know me well know that I'm a big Star Wars fan. So, when my wife heard that Motorola was going to release a limited-edition R2-D2 version of their new Droid 2 smartphone, she said, "you have to get one!"
OK, you don't have to twist my arm to get me to buy an R2-D2 Droid 2. This phone is supposed to have "external hardware designed to look like R2-D2." What does that mean? Will it be white and blue? I can't wait to see it. Are you attending Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando?
Here's what Verizon is saying about the R2-D2 Droid 2:
R2-D2 DROID 2
In honor of the iconic Astromech Droid from the Star Wars™ Saga, Verizon Wireless will offer a limited-edition R2-D2 version of the DROID 2, available only online in September. The special version of the phone will feature exclusive Star Wars content and external hardware designed to look like the trusty Droid from the film saga. Visitors to the upcoming Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando, Fla., can see a preview of the limited edition phone and sign up to receive alerts when the phone is ready for sale.
