R2D2 Custom Media Set

Posted: September 10, 2010 in Uncategorized

Droid-life has been doing some amazing coverage of the R2-D2 contest and features leading up to its release in 20 days.  One of their forum members even unlocked the first code to win the first custom R2-D2 phone in the giveaway.  On top of that, over the past few days the (what appears to be) official boot animation showed up on the internet, then the custom live wallpapers, and now the static wallpapers.  There’s quite a bit of content to be had here, but we have you covered with everything in one convenient location.

Check after the jump and find the breakdown, download, and sample videos or screen shots of all the content.

Live Wallpapers

Download the pack of the 4 live wallpapers from here.
