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]

KQCrackberry says:


You can get it now on Best Buy, until the stock runs out. Or you can wait to the end of September to get it in abundance. R2-d2 New Surprise!


Man that looks pretty ghetto.

The Mad Mule says:

Wow, talk about tacky.

Shay D. Life says:

Ghetto? Lmao.

Cnote187 says:


Not even Jawas would bother with this.

These aren't the droids we're looking for...

berny26 says:

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?

Mr.Miagi says:

Your better off then me, it took me all of 5 seconds to realize.

chefkeyser says:

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.

mngdew says:

That's fugly!

.46caliber says:

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.

serpico says:

LOL me too, still have the VHS trilogy in the box!

Davest says:

The blue box, with the hologram on the front? Yup, me too.

myriad46 says:

Depends on the version. It changed. That's the point. But which way did it switch? :-)

swimrage says:

This is not the droid you're hoping for.

trock70 says:

Han did not shoot first Gredo just missed and Han got lucky.

Bodar says:

Please surrender your Geek Card.

Davest says:

Wow...really? That's just sad. Aren't we educating our children?!? ; )

storino03 says:

that is one ugly star wars inspired phone.

johnjuan says:

Are you kidding?! guess I'll wait for pro.

judasmachine says:

Gawd, tell me this is a joke.

androidwhaaa says:

Damn, that thing just has FAIL written all over it.

Damn, that thing just has FAIL written all over it.

likwidsoul says:

Ok so where does the light saber pop out of?

moises1204 says:

it goes with the phone, they are both ugly.

DocToxyn says:

Ouch, it looks like R2 got stuck in the garbage smasher on the detention level.

djomega971 says:

That's one ug-LEE phone!

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

rustyjar79 says:

can't wait for the C3po version

I Like goooooollllllllldd!

wnflyer says:

I'm waiting for the 'Princess Leia' clamshell phone.


jeepzilla says:

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

easy1jay says:

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.

dtreo says:

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...

uberspeed says:

Han shot first reference, I had to look it up myself and I thought I was a fan... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_shot_first

@ Haters: I think this phone looks pretty rad. To each their own.

Dr Evo says:

Let me guess: Jabba sat on R2?

LordNyax78 says:

Maybe I an too big of a geek. But I would put anything starwars on my phone

Drasek says:

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.

EvanGMan says:

Can we just get an R2-D2 live wallpaper please?
