That must be the nicest way of saying Duct-Tape Gray that one could use.

I want it... but it only runs Android 2.1? What about 2.2??

I want one but I'm pretty sure no one will sell me one for 50 bucks. It would look great with my Darth Vader PSP

It runs 2.2 just fine...it is a Droid 2! Motorola sucks about getting new firmwares out (to be fair, they are better than most)...but you can get them yourself, and they are better that way anyhow.
