R2-D2 Droid 2

Look at this R2-D2 Droid 2. (Say that 10 times fast.) We've been staring at it for all of 5 minutes now and have come to the following conclusions:

  • If you know whether Han shot first, it's likely the most beautiful thing you've ever seen in your life.
  • If you have no idea what that means, you're likely perfectly normal and will go on to live a perfectly ordinary life.

We're not going to choose sides. We love all of our smartphones equally. Even the hideous ones. [@r2d2central via Engadget]

Is this the R2-D2 Droid 2?

If it took me a few minutes to figure out what the Han shot first reference meant, does that make me utterly hopeless, or is there some hope of me living a normal life?

Could you not just get the Droid 2 and put a skin/sticker like this on it? It looks pretty much like that's what Motorola has done here.

Damn you Phil. Now I have to go buy a copy, I have VHS from when I was younger but no VCR, so I can remember who shot first.

Can't believe this design is for real. This has to be the worst design EVER. Can you imagine someone in corporate America pulling out this in a boardroom. FAIL

this has to be a joke... if not, thats the dumbest thing ive ever seen sincw the samsung juke.... id rather have a star trek looking phone

The force is definitely with this one. I'd totally eat it up if not for my Incredible. And if the novelty wears off, you can put a cover on it to hide your inner geek.

I bought a life-sized Princess Leia sticker and pasted it on my wife, which looked much better than that sad attempt by Moto.

She was not happy when asked to wear two danishes...

Yeahhh I don't think R2 was ever that clean. I ordered my D2 yesterday and am glad I did. My hopes for this phone would have been a gun blasted war worn R2. This is what he must have looked like in the Droid store pre-purchase.
