Droid 2 R2-D2 Edition to Be Previewed at Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando



Wondering when you might get a chance to check out that limited edition Star Wars version of the Motorola Droid 2? If you happen to be making your way to Orlando for Star Wars Celebration V August 12th through 15th you can check it out in person, according to this screen grab from Verizon.

There is still no known release date for the R2-D2 variant, though the standard Droid 2 will launch on August 12th. While the nature of what content will be included with the R2-D2 version was revealed on Verizon’s promo site, exact details are not available, so that makes Celebration V a perfect opportunity to score some early hands-on time with the handset. The geek in me really wishes I could check it out myself.

Are any readers planning on attending the convention? If so let us know what you think of the Empire Strikes Back Droid 2!
