Droid 2 R2-D2 page now live, nerds everywhere shed tears of delight

Recipe for win -- 1 part newest Android phone, the Droid 2, and 1 part Star Wars' most memorable character, R2-D2.  Mix well, prepare for the onslaught of people like me who will do just about anything to throw our money at you so we can have one.  And to tease us until we explode, Verizon has gone live with the R2-Droid2 teaser page (opens in new tab).

Taking a cue from the X, it looks like this page has some locked content as well.  The site says to follow R2 on Twitter to unlock details, @droidlanding.  Why would anyone want to worry about unlocking content on a phone's launch page?  Two words -- Jedi Training.  We're following, you guys follow too, and whoever gets portions unlocked first has to tell the rest of us -- deal? [Verizon (opens in new tab)] Thanks to everyone who sent this in.

  • No one ever got any farther than that Transmission Log on the DroidX Page did they?
  • Damn, I JUST left Verizon. Maybe Sprint and HTC can get together with Joss Whedon and make us a Firefly phone...Yeah right. I mean, I'll say the same thing I said eighteen years ago; I want an R2-D2 phone.
  • Wow, why can't pics of this thing leak out, enough of the plain old Droid2 already.
  • This is the Droid 2.
  • Dammit I just missed the call from R2D2!
  • It just proves what we've all been saying. people buy apple as a status symbol. Women that are worried about status give it up more easily than those that re not worried about status
  • come oooooon epic.
  • Well I think this harkenss back to one of ac's previous stories about sex and Android....or maybe lack of it.
  • droid 2 > GS epic !dRoId!!
  • This is the droid we are looking for.
  • The Droid 2 is live
  • I WAS gonna get a droid x...
  • Based on the design in the upper left, it looks like this phone will come with a docking station that looks like R2's legs. The design on the back with the camera lens as R2's eye looks pretty cool. Too bad I have ATT...
  • George Lucas, right about now, is going.............KACHINGGGGGGGGGG
