The R2-D2 Droid 2 has been hitting Verizon Wireless Stores recently. Although they are just dummy units and not actually working, it is clear the release is getting very, very close to actually happening.
For all you fans, this may be just the device you have been longing for to show your extreme love for the popular pop culture icon that is Star Wars. However, you should know that even though the this is a brand new phone, it does not have the internals of the upcoming Droid 2 World Edition. But of course, for a hardcore Star Wars fan, a R2-D2 themed device is far greater than the ability to use it world wide.
Pricing is currently unknown on the device. And with all of the Star Wars extras preloaded and it’s unique skin, it is very unlikely that it will be boasting the same $199.99 price tag as it’s counterpart the Droid 2.[Via BGR]
