    Ok, I know the title is kinda cheesy but hey, I figured we might as well stick to the Star Wars theme with all this R2-D2 Droid2 talk lately. The Motorola Droid is back online and available through VerizonWireless.com. Verizon must have have found a stockpile of Droids they still need to deploy before they can completely retire it. Big red is also showing the HTC Droid Incredible in Stock and ready to ship. Seems like good timing with the Incredible Froyo update rumored to hit tomorrow (August 18th).

    Glad to see the giant isn't dead so prematurely. I still thoroughly enjoy the original Droid and wouldn't even think of "upgrading" until 4g is a way of life. Long live the Droid!!!

    +1...I love my OD (original Droid) and can't imagine moving on to the next phone until I know it'll have similar or better capabilites with root.

    Great Thread Title...I agree the Droid still has life left, I expect that we will see ROMs made with GingerBread Crumbs for the Original Droid before the year is up

    With the DI, DX, and D2 selling for $199, doesn't Verizon think that $149 is a but much for the D1? For months now you've been able to get the D1 from authorized retailers for free. Heck, at Wirefly you could get it for free, plus get $80 Bing Cashback!

    Yeah not sure how much they will sell of them because heck even at walmart they are only 50$ now. Something that amazed me when i looked and they were still trying to sell them for 200$ when even the DI and now the X out.

    I'll be sticking with my Droid until something better comes along, & by better I mean Rootable, stock vanilla Android OS (none of this SenseUI/Motoblur nonsense), & 4G.

    Miami pointed out that if you use a replacement launcher MotoBlur/SenseUI go away, at least on the X. I like ADW so much it's going on my next phone unless something better comes along. :)

    Looks like they already finished the rest of the stock off. & for those saying stuff about it being 149.99 I agree with you but please do not compare it to authorized dealers as they can offer the low low price by locking you down for 6-months where as Verizon you are buying the phone and you really don't have any restrictions.
