It looks like those images that surfaced of the Verizon Wireless DROID 2 R2-D2 Special Edition are the real deal. Android Central was sent an image of a Verizon R2-D2 promo poster — located at a Star Wars convention — that pictures the same exact device that was showcased yesterday, and the device is listed as “coming to your galaxy” on September 30th. So there you have it. Thoughts? Any takers? More →
By the beard of Chewbacca, we hope this isn’t an actual image of the Motorola DROID R2-D2 special edition! The erroneous image above surfaced on Twitter and its publisher is claiming it is none other than the Motorola DROID 2 R2-D2 special edition due out from Verizon Wireless in September. While the camera, dual-LED flash, and micro-USB port all seem to match the location of the actual D2, we’re hoping someone with too much time on their hands got a hold of some spray paint and blue stickers. Do you think George Lucas would license out the R2-D2 name and allow it to be bastardized like this? We sure hope not.
