Droid 2 'Star Wars' edition rumored for August release

There isn't even a confirmed release date for the Droid 2, and rumors are already swirling about a Star Wars version of the Motorola smartphone landing in August.

There isn't even a confirmed release date for the Droid 2, and rumors are already swirling about a Star Wars version of the Motorola smartphone landing in August. Earlier this week, it was theorized that the Droid 2 will be released in August on Verizon Wireless. Now it seems like there will be a special version with the character R2-D2 imprinted on the back.

This would make perfect sense. Not only is the word "droid" already owned by Star Wars creator George Lucas, but R2-D2 is probably the most famous droid there is.

Before all of the geeks rejoice, remember, this hasn't been confirmed yet. And if it is true, it's likely to cost a bit more, but just think about how much this collector's item will be worth a few decades from now.
