Verizon has always had a close relationship with Lucasfilm – the name of their famed DROID series of smartphones has been licensed from them since the original Motorola DROID was unveiled in 2009. Later came the DROID R2D2edition of the DROID 2 and the rest, as they say, is history. Today Verizon and Lucasfilm (Read: Disney) unveil another Star Wars themed DROID smartphone, the special edition Force Awakens DROID Turbo 2 (Say that five times fast).
What this actually means is that now on MotoMaker (which you can access online or in Verizon stores) there are pre-built DROID Turbo 2 designs that include custom color palates and backing materials based on characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The characters in question are Poe Dameron, Rey, BB-8, a First Order Stormtrooper, and Kylo Ren. My personal favorite is the BB-8 style:
Once you’ve gotten your custom Droided up DROID Turbo 2 you can download “Star Wars Wallpapers for Droid Turbo 2” app from the Google Play store for a set of custom wallpapers to make your setup complete. The Star Wars edition of the DROID Turbo 2 is virtually the same as any other DROID Turbo 2, so be on the lookout for my review of this indestructible phone sometime later this month. If you can’t wait that long, go ahead and pick one up now from Verizon Wireless or MotoMaker
