image thumb25 Google Acquires Motorola, Why Exactly?

Riddled by the recent happenings of Microsoft firing ferociously at it, Google for some odd reason appears to be on wobbly grounds.

Recall Motorola going the George Lucas’ way with a special release of their Android based phone? Well if you had been one of those waiting for the R2-D2 Droid from Motorola then wait no more as Verizon hints at the device will be in stores on September 30. I just wonder if this release would encourage an epic collection of Star Wars’ collection.

The device will be the second generation of the DROID 2 with an R2-D2 touch to it. It will also boast an updated 1.2 GHz processor compared to the 750MHz that powered the DROID 2. Other than looks of the R2-D2 it would also have the R2-D2 ringtone and sounds for notifications, a clock widget, four live wallpapers and a bonus binoculars app. Let me just clarify, that the 1.2GHz processor is not yet confirmed, which if not true will be quite a disappointment. I mean if looks are all that matter, they can even try to turn Barbie into a Doll Mobile?

The cell phone manufacturer has asked  sites like MyDroidWorld, and others to take down leaked files immediately. So fret not or curse the communities for having broken links to installation files given they have been pulled down. You can still probably Google for existing mirrors which might just be having the Froyo version. Though it’s highly improbable you will find one.

There have been quite some talks about Motorola working on a device to come running on the Android platform. Well it appears that the Moto Droid is just a week away from the launch and will be available on November  6. The price tag on this will be $199 and will come with a two year contract. Apart from that users will need to pay $39 for the voice plan and $29 for the email plan. It will be interesting to see what exactly is the device like and is it really worth all the effort they are putting. To be honest the device looks too much like old HTC models, just my thoughts.
