Verizon Releases Photos of R2-D2 DROID 2

Verizon has begun teasing us about the limited edition R2-D2 version of its DROID 2. On sale on September 30, very little is known about the R2-D2 DROID 2, other than what the back cover will look like. When Verizon confirmed the DROID 2, it said the Star Wars-themed R2-D2 model would look similar to everyone's favorite droid and contain 'exclusive Star Wars content'. Soon after, leaked pictures showed the back of the phone's design. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the rest of the phone. 

Now it looks like Big Red is finally ready to give us a little peek at the entire device. Over the last few days, the Verizon-run DroidLanding Twitter account has been helping followers 'unlock' different parts of its R2-D2 website. So far, two of the eight subheadings have been revealed. The Apps and Widgets heading doesn't reveal much, aside from a nifty on-screen R2-D2 clock, and the possibility of a Star Wars news widget. However, the Device Gallery has also been unlocked and it yields some pretty sweet shots of the device itself and a Star Wars dock for the phone.

Check 'em out below. You can also head on over to the R2-D2 DROID 2 landing page, complete with theme song and scrolling intro, for more information on how you can help unlock the additional six categories.
