R2-D2 smartphone is now available in the Hub
Verizon Wireless said that today marks the official launch of the Droid R2-D2, a limited edition smartphone from Motorola that marks the 30th anniversary of "Star Wars."
The Verizon Wireless store at 340 Washington St. in Boston is the only store in New England selling this limited edition device, though the device will also be available online at www.verizonwireless.com, the company said. Among the smartphone's Star Wars-themed features are special Star Wars inspired graphics and R2-D2 ringtones.
The DROID R2-D2 device by Motorola is available for $249 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement, said Verizon Wireless, which provided the image with this post.
