Verizon Wireless made the release date for the Motorola DROID R2-D2, Star Wars Special Edition handset public. The device will be available beginning on September 30th online and in select stores for $249 after a $100 mail-in-rebate. The special-edition smartphone will come preloaded with notification sounds, ringtones, wallpapers, widgets, and music from the Star Wars movies. How cool is that? You know, if you’re a complete Star Wars nut.
Regardless of what you think about the whole iPhone 4 antenna debate, there’s no denying that it’s fueling a massive amount of creativity on the Internet.
My three favorite lines from this video:
“Are you seriously defending the new phone by saying that it almost performs as well as the old phone? Is that what the plan is?”
“Ha ha, and get what, the EVO? I mean those poor saps are having light leaks and their screens peeling off after a couple of days.”
“And don’t even get me started on the Droid X. Uh, let’s see, you take the original phone, remove the physical keyboard, make it as big as a toaster, and still don’t add a front-facing camera? Yeah, that’s progress.”
