Don't know if it works on the Eris, but this works on my Droid. I can drag the icon to the bottom of the screen and drop it when it turns red. That will simply remove the icon. However, if I hold the icon over the trash can for a second or two a dialog pops up that says 'drop to uninstall.' If I drop it, it goes through the uninstall process and the app is gone.
That being said, I tried it with a preinstalled app and it said the uninstall was unsuccessful.
Almost forgot, I'm running Home++ so it may just be a function of that software.
