Verizon may have special Star Wars edition Droid 2

Verizon may give the Motorola Droid 2 a surprise special edition when it ships next month, an insider hinted on Tuesday. The phone should ship slightly earlier than expected, on August 12, but will notably come with a Star Wars edition with a white R2-D2 on its back. In giving the tip, the Engadget source didn't say whether it would ship at the same time as the plain model.

Last year, Verizon had shipped out toy R2-D2s to the media as a teaser for the first Droid; it was legally requrired to license the Droid name from Lucasfilm to keep its branding.

Although the Droid X has been treated as Verizon's new Android flagship and has sold out both online and in stores, the Droid 2 is expected to be the true successor to the November 2009 original. It will have the same 3.7-inch screen but an improved QWERTY slider, a much faster 1GHz processor and possibly Android 2.2 out of the box.
