R2-D2 DROID 2 Pictures Flooding in

On September 30th, you will all have the opportunity to jump online and snag one of the 50,000 or so special edition R2-D2 Droid 2‘s and with such a small number to be made available, you better be ready.  If you had previously been unimpressed by the first couple of photos to hit the interwebs, then maybe some of the new shots to come out over the weekend will change your mind a bit.


Anyone ready to pull the trigger and pick one up?

    Some will, some won't, so what. This phone is going to sell out and all of the people who first looked at it and said ” I would never”,will be kicking themselves when they see this phone in a few years on a auction site worth a thousand times what the person paid for it. Think of all of the things people said they would never buy that became collectors items. They are only releasing 50K, hmmmmmmmm.

  • Per phandroid — the DROID is back!!! Nice. +1, Verizon:

    great for the collectors but not for the everyday folks….imagine using this phone EVERY day…. mehh~

  • joesred

    Can you imagine seeing people holding this up to take pictures….

      i feel pretty awkward holding my DX up to take a picture… but holding that up would be even worse.

      Not that I feel it's a bad design, I just feel that it doesn't appeal to too many people. I think people are underestimiting the “cool gadget” effect the phone will have on people who don't know the difference between an Eris and a D2 when they see the phone in person.

  • Make a c 3po droid 2

    I think they would have been better off making 5000 of these MAX instead of 50k and upping the price because i dont see them selling out of these. In fact, id bet that the reg D2 will sell out n reps will offer up the R2d2 version and ppl will just say theyll come back another time or go somewhere else to get one.
