    I woulda if I coulda.

    I think the problem will be that a lot of people here already made the jump to the D2 or DX, and if not they are holdout guys that want to wait for the next next gen device.

    Apparently the ones who bought this device live in a Galaxy far, far away and don't have access to the Forum

    I plan on buying next paycheck. I called my local store yesterday and they said they doubt they'll be getting any in and that they could order me one.

    I plan on rooting it and loading some other ROM onto it. I don't care too much for the StarWars crap, just the R2D2 shell. I might be nerdy, but I'm not nerdy enough to have my phone spitting out StarWars beeps and blips. Basically, I want something no one else around me will have.

    For some reason I predict that they won't have any to order for you. There really aren't a lot of them out there.

    I thought this thread would be full of people proudly sporting the new R2D2. I'm shocked that no one is.

    Well I'll be the first then. I've been lurking on the droid forum on and off for a while hoping to upgrade to a droid when I could and just upgraded from a Storm 2 to the R2-D2 droid. :) The phone looks great, the included media dock also looks great (boy is it heavy). Boot time was amazingly fast compared to the Storm 2.

    I'm hoping to root the phone and then go crazy installing apps over the weekend.. :)

    Thanks to everyone on here hopefully I will not have to ask to many stupid questions once I dig into the phone.

    I got mine in today!! It's my very first smart phone :)

    Very excited to break it in and figure out all the good stuff about android.
    Would also eventually want to root it so I can have custom themes or roms... looking forward to browsing the forums for help on this.

    :)

    Curious how these things sold. I thought there would be reports that it sold out in hours.

    Star Wars fans are ravenous when it comes to collectors items.....

    Apparently not as ravenous with these devices. I wanted to buy one just to hold on to. I think it would be a great collectors item.
    Also I think that most people got a Droid X or Droid INC. Those devices were sold out and on back order for months after there release. I think that most of the people that wanted an android device already have one.

    My wife says I'm a dork, but...

    My wife says I'm a dork, but... I bought mine the day it came out. The store didn't have any in stock, but it should be arriving at my door step Monday :)

    I am new to the forum, and after ordering my phone, I decided to join.

    We have been thinking of upgrading phones for a couple weeks, as I was eligible for my new every 2 $50 upgrade credit. I logged on to the Verizon site on Thursday and saw the R2 unit. I hadn't even thought about a smartphone at the time, so news of this phone was new to me. I was holding off on a smartphone, as I was trying to cheap out on the $30 data plan. This was just the thing to push me over the edge.

    My wife said "no way" to her owning one, but she did get a Samsung Fascinate. She's digging it.
