It's only fitting that Motorola would build a Droid device around the most famous android of all time. We're of course talking about R2-D2 and not Google's open-source platform, though that Android is included in the fray as well. You've read about the R2-D2 Droid, you've seen the pictures, and at long last, you can finally order one.

The limited edition smartphone is now available through Verizon for $249 with a two-year service agreement, regardless of whether you're a new or existing subscriber (full retail price is $699). That gets you one of the coolest looking phones in the galaxy, a multimedia dock, and a handful of exclusive content pre-loaded on the device, including ringtones, interactive wallpaper, a custom clock Widget, a "Best of R2-D2" video with original Cantina music, and an Empire Strikes Back Binoculars application.

In case you need a refresher, Motorola's Droid 2 smartphone comes with a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 5MP camera, 512MB RAM, 8GB pre-installed microSD card (expandable up to 32GB), 1GHz processor, and Android 2.2 (Froyo).

Anyone planning on picking up an R2-D2 Droid?

Man...i have 1 more year with my Tmobile phone. I currently run on a flip phone blackberry and it consistently dying on me. This is totally geeky! There must be some sort of R2D2 ringer that comes with it.

Cute phone.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
