Verizon’s Motorola Droid 2 R2-D2 limited edition officially arrives this Thursday

If the original Droid 2 is too boring for you, Verizon has you covered with the Motorola Droid R2-D2 limited edition, which has just been officially announced.

Available at Verizon starting September 30 (this Thursday), the Droid 2 R2-D2 will cost $249 after a $100 mail-in rebate (new 2-year contract agreement required).

Featuring a cover painted to remind us of the R2-D2 Droid from Star Wars, the smartphone is offered with a Star Wars media dock and wired stereo headset, and is packaged “in a custom box resembling carbonite.” It also features exclusive content: R2-D2 ringtones and notification sounds, an R2-D2 Clock Widget, live wallpapers, a Binoculars App, and “The Best of R2-D2” video.

Verizon has also announced that all of its customers with smartphones running Android 2.1 or higher will soon be able to download an “Empire Strikes Back app” via Android Market. The app will allow you to preview and download Star Wars content (premium content available for a one-time charge of $2.99).
