Cost of Droid R2-D2 Edition

Droid R2-D2 Edition Will Cost $249 After Rebate

In the words of C-3PO, "that R2-D2 is in prime condition, a real bargain!" Or is it? Verizon Wireless has announced the price of the Motorola Droid 2 R2-D2 edition at $249 after a $100 mail-in rebate, which is $50 more than the Droid 2.

The Star Wars-themed smartphone will be released Sept. 30. It will be preloaded with R2-D2 notification sounds and ringtones, live wallpapers (one is Luke balancing Yoda, which honestly sounds hilarious), an R2-D2 clock widget, "The Best of R2-D2" video with the original Cantina music, and an exclusive Binoculars App. If you're not ready to throw down for the new, novelty hardware but own an Android device running Android 2.1 or higher, you can download the Empire Strikes Back app from Android Market for $2.99.
