R2-D2 Edition DROID 2 Smartphone Will Surely Sell Out Quick
This will be a limited edition phone that is only sold online starting next month, and Verizon nor Motorola is confessing to how many units will be made available. The phone will only operate on Verizon Wireless, and aside from the design and probably a few multi-media add-ins, it's the exact same as the standard DROID 2. The difference that will have everyone talking is the rear. It's designed to share the look and feel of R2-D2 from the famed Star Wars saga, and while it isn't actually shaped like everyone's favorite droid, the colors are unmistakable.
And judging by the teaser page set up at Verizon's DROID DOES website, we suspect this guy will shout "DROID!" in an authentic R2-D2 voice whenever new e-mail or alerts hit your phone. There's also no word on a price or an exact ship date, but you can pretty much bet that these will sell out remarkably quick.
