We’re used to seeing Star Wars fans lining up for movie premiers, but what about Verizon Wireless phones? The Motorola Droid R2D2 special edition has just been released and the first nerd – and I say that as a fellow nerd – has been pictured nabbing one in Orlando.
If you’ve been wanting one of these since they were first announced, you’d better run and hurry! The R2D2 Droid for Verizon is a special edition and was made in limited numbers. In case you’ve been living under a rock, or you’ve been busy buried underneath all your George Lucas memorabilia, here are the phone’s specs (not unlike the regular, more boring Droid 2):
- 1GHz OMAP 3600 Series processor
- 3.7-inch touchscreen display with 854×480 resolution
- Side-sliding QWERTY keyboard
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB Flash storage
- 8GB microSD
- Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR
- 5 megapixel camera with video capture
- Star Wars media dock
- Exclusive Star Wars content including ringtones, live wallpapers, R2-D2 widget, binoculars app and more
- 1400 mAh battery

Go get it!
