Verizon Droid R2-D2 Star Wars Special Edition Gets Priced
The big thing soon to be landing on Verizon Wireless is the Droid R2-D2 Star Wars Special Edition smartphone which of course sports that special Star Wars coat resembling your favourite cheeky beeping droid.
We’ve heard from a previous posting that Verizon will make the Droid R2-D2 special edition available to the public as of the 29th of this month (see here) although and article over on Engadget is reporting that Verizon has announced it will be available as of the 30th of this month.
However, what we didn’t know for sure was what the Droid R2-D2 would set customers back in the cash department, and now apparently we know that too as according to said Engadget article the device will cost $249 after a $100 mail in rebate.
So basically if you wish to own the Droid 2 R2-D2 smartphone you’re going to have to dig deep and shell out a hefty $350 up front to get your hands on it. But for your cash you’ll pick up the handset in a custom carbonite design boxing and the device will include wallpapers, photos, sounds, widgets and the like all to do with Star Wars of course.
