Just a few moments ago the nice UPS man came knocking on my door. Upon opening this box (I was slightly confused as I wasn't expecting anything) I was shocked to see one of the Limited Edition R2D2 Droids sitting inside. After staring at it for about 10 minutes in awe and surprise I did what any normal Android fanatic would do, grabbed my camera and unboxed it!
In the videos you will see everything that came in the box, the boot-up screen and some of the special features that come with the phone. The exclusive app isn't available till Thursday through the Android market, however, the phone does come with some other goodies such as the Star Wars Binoculars App and the Best of R2D2 movie clips.

A couple of things before watching the videos I quickly filmed. 1) I say Star Trek at least once. My apologies I've not had enough coffee today just yet. 2) I sound like crap because I'm getting sick. So with that in mind, without further delaying on my part, here is the unboxing of the Limited Edition R2D2 Android phone from Verizon Wireless.
There is a lot more to go over so I'll be posting more pictures and video throughout the day. So far this is a great looking for any Star Wars fan will soil themselves over.
