Droid 2 R2D2 shows up in likely place, a Star Wars Convention

So on Wednesday the amazingly powerful Droid 2 went on sale. Today there are many proud new Droid 2 users roaming the Earth. But also there is a small sector of potential Droid 2 buyers that have held off on the devices greatness as to wait for a Droid 2 with a little more character.

On the faithful day Verizon finally opened their mouth about the Droid 2 they also confirmed the existence of the R2D2 Droid 2. The R2D2-D2 was a rumored version of the Droid 2 that would ship to your door designed directly after the most lovable Droid of them all,  R2D2 from Star Wars Fame (R2D2 could have had his own movie and been a star!). So the rumors flew and the anticipation grew, as if your into Androids you most likely have a soft spot for all things Star Wars and R2. Yesterday a leaked photo of the Droid 2 decked out in all its R2D2 gear made its way to the interwebs, via a good old fashioned tweet. The picture laid out the Droid 2 R2D2 version showing off the devices backside which seemingly carries the majority of the design. Well to my dismay, the pictures leaked yesterday are indeed real. Take a look at the picture at the top of this post, (the pic from yesterday below) it shows the R2D2 Droid 2 that was pictured yesterday on a Verizon poster. The poster was posted by Android Central and was originally spotted at a Star Wars convention. The Verizon poster then goes on to further confirm the R2D2 Droid 2 will be “Coming to your Galaxy 9.30.10.

So there it is folks the R2D2 Droid 2, I’m sure there will be another pic of the unit in the near future and most interested are anticipating seeing the front side of the R2D2-D2. I for one am not too impressed with the design, as I said yesterday, we have seen mailbox’s that had more detail in design.

Tell us what you’re thinking here, will you wait on the R2D2 Droid 2? How do you feel about the design?
