The Droid 2 hype engine is running at full speed nowadays. There will be a special edition Star Wars branded Droid 2 available which will ship with themed boot animation and live wallpapers. A forum member has already extracted the good stuff from a leaked ROM dump and put them up for download. These include a few live wallpapers and the cool boot animation showing an interactive R2-D2. Really exciting stuff for geeks.
If you have an Android phone, you can get your hands on the goodies too.
