Droid 2 R2-D2 Edition Spotted, Coming September 30th

We have been hearing about the R2-D2 special edition of the Motorola Droid 2 for a while now, but we now know what the backing of the phone will finally look like. Android Central was given images from the Star Wars convention happening in Orlando, Florida. At the convention is a display of what the phone will look like, as well as a poster showing the phone, giving us our first real look at how the R2-D2 version, as well as a release date of September 30th.

From looking at the photos, it appears that the whole case of the phone will be white, not just the backing. In addition, the buttons on the side will be blue. As for the keyboard, I am making a guess here, but I wouldn't be surprised if Motorola followed up the theme with white keys, a blue keyboard background, and white letters. Or a vice versa of the color scheme, with a while background, blue keys, and white lettering. Either way, it looks to be a Star Wars fans smartphone fantasy.

MobileCrunch notes that there is "one detail not mentioned: price. Special Edition handsets tend to cost a bit more (hey, they are special, after all), so it presumably won’t go for the same $199 (on a 2-year contract) price." Engadget seems unfazed however, arguing that "hey -- Artoo's worth it, right?"

MobileCrunch asks if there "is anyone else sort of disappointed by the design? Though blue, white, and boxy, it doesn’t really look very R2-ish."
