You can now take a little Star Wars with you wherever you go with Motorola’s awesome-looking Droid R2-D2 phone on Verizon. The special edition of their Droid 2 comes (on top of the Droid 2’s usual specs) with a really cool themed dock, R2-D2 clock widget, and a carbonite design box, alongside a host of wallpapers, photos, sounds and wired stereo headset. There’s also the Binocular App, which is presumably a digital zoom.

Fans will also find a special video called “The Best of R2-D2”, containing the original Cantina music.

In addition, for all Verizon users running Android 2.1 and higher can access the Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back app. For a one-off price of $2.99, you can access even more wallpapers, photos, sounds, and a few games, plus hidden content and widgets.

The Droid R2-D2 will be available from September 30th, however there is a slight catch. The handset itself costs $249, however there is also a $100 mail rebate to pay on top of that too. Then, you’ll need to sign up for a two-year voice and data plan too. Though for hardcore Star Wars fans, it’s probably worth the charges.

No word yet if it comes in Lego bricks.

Check out the all images on the Droid Does website.
