Droid 2 Launching As Soon As August 12, Embraces Star Wars Roots With R2-D2 Edition




Ready to have your mind blown? Good, then sit down for a moment: we're hearing from a trusted source that the thoroughly-leaked Motorola Droid 2 for Verizon will be launching on August 12 -- although it seems to be something of a soft launch, because marketing efforts aren't scheduled to kick in until a week and a half later on the 23rd.

What's even more interesting, though, is that there'll be a Star Wars edition of the phone launching with a white R2-D2 on the back. For the record, this isn't the first time Verizon has toyed with the Droid line's Star Wars origins; Motorola actually had to license the name from Lucasfilms, and to promote the original phone, Big Red sent around remote-control Artoos last year to various media outlets.

What we don't know is whether the special edition will be launching at the same time as the stock version -- so if the plain-vanilla Droid 2 comes out first, that might automatically make the decision of which to buy for some folks. What about you?

Does this mean that the framework of the R2-D2 Version might not be Vanilla Android?


Is Motorola flirting with the Darkside?


That alone would be a decision maker for me...

RUMOR: Droid Pro C-3P0 edition coming Q4/2010. The exact specs are unknown but what is known that whenever you use it it whines incessantly and tells you the odds of how successful your chances are of rooting the phone everytime you attempt to do so.

I was hoping that a special STAR WARS version of these Droids would be made, and finally it will happen! I think that I would go with the Droid Pro C-3PO version though that way maybe it will talk to me! I already have my Incredible sounding like R2, but the paint scheme will probably look awesome!

I would want just more than a paint scheme! Sounds and backgrounds pre loaded with some custom stuff also!
