The Motorola DROID RAZR M may not be a top tier device, but it is certainly a capable Android smartphone. As we found in our review, the RAZR M offers a lot of bang for the buck when purchased from Verizon for $99. That equation has improved significantly for the holidays as Verizon is now offering the handset for only $49.99 with a two-year contract. This is a good opportunity to get your hands on a relatively decent Android smartphone without breaking the bank. Hit the break to view Verizon’s promo video that includes the offer. » Read the rest

Yesterday we announced the HTC partnership with Beats by Dre. Shortly after Best Buy announced a special offer for this weekend. They are offering 20% off any Beats by Dre headphone with the purchase of an HTC phone. Not a bad deal, but you have to be in the market for an HTC phone to make this work.
While the special edition R2-D2 DROID 2 units aren’t going to be rolling out until the end of the month, it looks like some of the dummy units have already begun to slip into stores. Judging by these shots, it looks like there’s going to be some custom packaging to go along with it.
I could sit here and bore you with speculation, but it would probably be better if you saw the shots for yourself. Remember, this new little beep-beep-booping bundle of Motorola joy will only be coming to select stores when it is released September 30th. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.

Today Verizon amped up the hype machine on the upcoming Special Edition Droid R2-D2. This highly anticipated piece of hardware will be available exclusively online on September 30th but for eight lucky and hard working sleuths it will come free. Verizon has launched a viral contest today that will gradually leak “lost schematics” for the phone as fans decipher clues given through Twitter (@DroidLanding). There are eight schematics to be uncovered which are currently inactive links on the Droid R2-D2 website.
- Device Gallery
- Apps + Widgets
- Exclusive Video
- Boot-Up Sequence
- R2-D2 Soundboard
- Home Screens
- Enhancescan App
The first clue has already been given through Twitter, Attack Pattern Alpha. After putting the URL for that page in the C-3P0 tweet translator on the Droid R2-D2 website you will be redirected to the Picasa web gallery of Luka Kurtz, where you will find pictures of Luke and Porkins in their X-Wings. Unfortunately this is as far as the hunt has gone to this point and no lost schematics have been uncovered yet. What do you guys think of this? Will you be getting involved or sitting this one out? Let us know in the comments.
