Good point. I was excited about the fixes and didn't really pay attention to the rest I guess. When they said new/added I didn't even really think about it.

The search feature within the market also already works on the eris. Sounds like a lot of the issues found in the sprint hero were already fixed for the Eris release.

Yeah honestly it kinda sounds like they got the current Eris ROM With maybe a few fixes we don't have yet, but will be getting in December. Anyway, glad to see HTC is supporting these devices well... they got their first update just over a month after release, and we'll get ours just a little over a month after release. No complaints about that from me!

Does Verizon have to approve the software updates? I know BlackBerry updates always seemed to be delayed due to Verizon being so picky. I would always have to update my software using some regional carriers' updates.

I would hate for this to be the case with all of Verizon's Android handsets.

I would guess YES VZW has to approve for the Eris, but not for the Droid (since it is a google experience phone or whatever they call it)...
