R2-D2 Phone Is the Droid You’re Looking For

By Chris Scott Barr

I think most of us can agree that R2-D2 is one of the coolest droids out there. So it’s only natural that the new Verizon Droid 2 is going to have a special limited edition R2-D2 version. This is likely being done to celebrate the anniversary of The Empire Strikes back, which is this year. There aren’t a lot of details floating around just yet, but we should hear more when the device is officially unveiled at this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration V.

    Didn't Lucas try to sue Verizon over the name “droid”? This is an interesting reversal.

    One of my friends painted his like R2D2 when he got the phone a while back. Whats sad is, if that is a photo of the finished product, his looks much much better.

    Doesn't any particular event have an anniversary every year?
