There’s been some buzz floating around the web about a special version of the Verizon Droid 2, decked out to look like the little R2 unit that inspired its name. The special-edition phone isn’t supposed to be shown until the start of tomorrow’s Celebration V show, but I stumbled onto this picture one day early, snapped by the folks at R2-D2 Central.

If you ask me, Vertu missed one hell of a cross-promotion deal with the latest incarnation of their Ascent mobile phone, especially with the phone’s armored style and aluminum and titanium material. I mean look at it, wouldn’t it be awesome in Iron Man’s colors?

Made for a presentation at MobileCampBrussels, the Phone Guitar is made out of five smartphones (actually there’s an iPod Touch standing in for the iPhone) on three different mobile platforms using three different programing languages as well as two third-party apps, a custom cross-platform sequencer app, a stick, some battery powered speakers, and a whole lot of duct tape.
I can say with a high degree of certainty that this is not the new iPhone 4G.

With Apple and Nokia trying to bury each other in lawsuits, Nikkanen must have been aware of the irony when he posted a video on YouTube showing his nerdy (albeit useless) achievement: an N900 running Apple’s OS X 10.3, aka Panther – with the help of a pre-release version of PearPC.
