Unless you just really do not like Star Wars how can you not think this looks cool? Verizon has puzzle challenges on their website that leak information about the Droid R2-D2 as you figure out the puzzles. Yesterday the pics of the docks were unlocked and--not that they perform or operate any better than the standard Droid 2--we think they look really cool.
Verizon is really doing something different here, and they for sure have the attention of all the geeks and Star Wars fans. Is it good marketing or just something that is humorous? We would like to hear what you think about the R2-D2 that will come out eventually. Would you think about getting it just because it is named and designed after a real Droid?
