Best Buy has announced (sort-of) pricing for the long-awaited Droid 2: $199 with two-year service plan activation or $599 without. Engadget reader Greg (who lives in North Carolina) sent in photos taken at his local Best Buy. The leaked dummy units are on display in the store – complete with price tags.
There’s still no official word as to when the phone will go on sale, despite rumors of it happening on August 12th. The original Droid now appears to be “out of stock” on the Verizon website – adding even more fuel to the rumor fires surrounding the launch of this new model.
Verizon has allowed a LOT of information to be leaked regarding this as-yet unreleased phone. What better way to build momentum and gain free advertising, though? Over the weekend, a newspaper advertisement was also leaked, showing the Droid 2 going on sale very soon.
Are you salivating yet? Do you plan to grab one of these hot little devices as soon as they hit the market?
The new Motorola Droid 2 is rumored to be launching on August 12th. All of you who are robot-loving Star Wars fanatics will want to pay close attention to this. According to a source at Engadget, the sequel to the original Droid iteration will not only have Froyo loaded at launch – it will have an optional R2-D2 special edition logo on the back! To those of you who are now salivating, I KNOW it sounds too good to be true. However, several reputable (and some not so much so) blogs are now reporting on this little piece of news. We’ll see in the near future how true it really is!
Remember, Verizon and Motorola had to license the Droid name from Lucas Films in order to use it for the Android device. Thus, it appears as though the Droid line is heading back to its Star Wars roots. What do you think? Will we see the beloved robot on the backs of phones everywhere anytime soon?
You won’t find R2 in our software center. You WILL find the latest and greatest software and apps for all of your devices.
