When Verizon announced the new Motorola DROID 2 (which is available today!), they mentioned that there would be a special R2-D2 version of the DROID 2 hitting some time in September. While we'll have to wait to actually purchase the device, a photo of the DROID in the wild has leaked out for all to see. Sure, it's only the back of the device, but it's better than nothing. Besides, that's likely the part that will most closely resemble everyone's favorite Artoo unit, anyway. The R2-D2 DROID 2 will be previewed at Star Wars Celebration V, which starts today, so I'm sure we'll be seeing much more of this little DROID very soon.
Although it may not be big with the mainstream, Star Wars fans are a fervent bunch, and I'm sure the R2-D2 DROID 2 (that's a mouthful) will fly off the virtual shelves when it hits next month. The device will have the look of R2-D2 on the outside and will come packed with all kinds of exclusive Star Wars content preloaded onto the handset. So, how many of you are going to cover your eyes and ears and ignore everything DROID 2 while you wait for the R2-D2 DROID 2?
