The perfect smartphone for Star Wars fans has just been released from Motorola for the Verizon Wireless network.  The Empire Strikes Back Special Edition R2-D2 Droid 2 phone is available now.

This bad boy is a special edition Motorola Droid 2 with very cool graphics on the back to make it resemble that cute little Astromech droid everyone knows and loves. This phone is more than just a normal Droid phone with an R2-D2 paintjob however.  The Star Wars theme is carried throughout everything making this phone very cool and very collectible.  It comes with a Star Wars media dock and even comes specially boxed in packaging made to resemble carbonite!

  1. I think this is a pretty sweet looking phone but I'm not sure the price tag is worth it considering there is no real performance improvement over the standard Droid 2.
    After all the price tag is basically only for a new front design, an R2-D2 boot sequence and some decent wallpapers and apps.

    I get the R2-D2 being a DROID concept...but I still pray they make a Vader version. That would be so sweet!

    What do you guys think? Is this new R2-D2 Droid phone a hit or a dud?
