There have been a lot of talks about the upcoming Motorola Droid 2. Rumors have put it that the new Android based device will be out in markets by mid August, which is anytime within this week. Rumors also include that it will be running Froyo, the latest build of Google’s flagship mobile OS.

But what has really caught attention is that Motorola is or might be dedicating this one to the Star Wars franchise. Not as in giving the device the name and floating in earnings to some Star Wars funds, but will be releasing the Star Wars edition launching it with R2-D2 color combination on the back. Those are just rumors though, we might actually see a plain uni-color device and this especial addition might or might not release, but the picture above says that there is definitely one in the making.

Coming over to this love for Lucas’ Star Wars character, Motorola isn’t doing it for the first time. The mobile phone manufacturer has licenses to promote their own devices.

I am not bothered enough to be impressed enough to go for a Motorola Droid, since I am no fan of the device. I just find them too difficult to carry around and use. But this R2-D2 at the back looks pretty nice and I bet fans of the Star Wars series might pit in their cash to grab one. Will you? Let us know in the comments.
