Star Wars Nerds, Rejoice!

The Droid 2's press release included the revelation that Verizon would also be launching an R2-D2 themed version of the next-gen smartphone. This collector's item is billed as packing special Star Wars software and a unique design. Today, Android and Me has posted up images of this cool new droid, straight from a Star Wars convention in Orlando.

The R2-D2 edition will come with special Empire wallpaper (odd for a Rebel droid), Star Wars sound effects, stills from the films, original artwork, and "Jedi training". We have no idea what that last bit is. A teaser site for the new phone is up now. This partnership between LucasFilm and Verizon should surprise no one. Every Droid commercial and ad comes with a note that the word "droid" is a registered trademark of LucasFilm Ltd.
