DROID 2 R2-D2 Dock Found, But It’s No X-Wing

Recently Verizon has had a puzzle game you can play. It requires vast knowledge of the Star Wars trilogy and some free time. Basically, if you’re the first person to find and figure out the puzzle, you get a R2-D2 special edition DROID 2. In the meantime, yesterday’s winner David H. found some press pics of the Droid 2’s R2-D2 dock, which doesn’t look like an X-Wing, has no missiles, cockpit, grappling hooks, etc. (you get the idea).

But it’s still awesome looking.

The new LaCie MosKeyto, your next USB drive? What does it do? Well, it’s no more than 20mm in length and 10 grams in weight,and extends only 6mm in your laptop; hence the “MosKeyto” naming. Huh, get it!?

Verizon Wireless Gets Funky By Going Prepaid With All New Androids

So Verizon Wireless has done something very interesting and very new (in their case). By offering a prepaid plan on all of their new smartphones, Droid Incredible, Droid 2, Droid 1, and Droid X included, customers will be flocking in on Spetember 28th when sales begin. An unlimited 3G data plan will run you at about $30, and a voice plan on top of that should probably end up at paying $60-70 a month for a brand new spanking smartphone, without a 2-year agreement.

And to honor this post, I will be striding into a Verizon store on the 28th to go ahead a buy myself a Droid X, Incredible, Droid 2, or just get all three.

T-Mobile G2 Pricing Seen In Latest Leak Through T-Mobile’s Faucet

So the T-Mobile G2 pricing you ask? According to unofficial but ding-on-the-right-note-every-time TMoNews, the G2 will cost $199.99 on a 2-year contract, and $499.99 without. Mind you that T-Mobile is a GSM carrier, and the phone supports HSPA+ bands, so it’s a match made in heaven. Now all we (the tech industry and consumers) is an official unveiling and some detailed specifications. And of course a press invite *wink*.
