None of the above. The R2D2 phone is a marketing ploy meant for the upcoming 3D re-releases of the Star Wars movies/franchise. Now, that's going to confuse EVERYONE! There are quite a few lines about Droids in those movies. Back when car phones were called "CB Radios"... and CDs were called "8-tracks."
Wow this is 3 minutes of my life I can never have back from reading this.
Motorola, and HTC are the only ones on the Verizon network that have designated their phones as "Droid"
But I bet Samsung would beg to differ that they are "official droid" phones.
Pretty sure HTC would beg to differ that the HTC Evo shouldn't be classified at a "Droid" phone.
It's only called Droid cause of its naming, not because it's better.
Darn it, there goes another minute.
I blame it on Minty, he started it.
