    I took my phone in today to get it checked out and the Verizon rep said that Android 2.2 is being tested on the Eris. Am not sure if he was being serious or was trying to make me feel happy

    Well if it can (hardware limited?) work on the Eris. Then it wouldn't be too hard to believe given the incredible will get it.

    I'm surprised he didn't promise you an update next month. I guess he has no reason to since you already bought the phone.

    If he has any information to back his claim up at all, he's probably referring to the devs who are messing with Froyo on a rooted phone.

    "Testing" just means they are trying it out on the eris to see how it'll work. Doesn't mean its getting released though. Based on how their testing goes will determine if we will ever see an official 2.2 on the Eris. I remain hopeful we will, or at least that the ROM gets leaked.

    Probably since 2.1 was epic failure

    No, it really wasn't. But there was a massacre of kittens as a result of it.

    You know it really is great to have the latest and greatest Android version and we should be grateful that we have 2.1. That said though most of us will have our Eris for almost 2 years, how much would it suck to be on 2.1 when everyone else has 2.5 or 3.0, ect.

    Maybe for you. Thousands upon thousands have no problem with it.

    I really hope it does come to the Eris and I don't see why it can't. Sure they will disable a few features on it like they did in 2.1 to run on the hardware but 2.2 does seem to run smoother and faster. It seems to handle the memory a lot better, most on 2.2 find no reason to even run a task killer at all (and acutally no task killer seems to be working on 2.2 at the moment). I know a lot of people in the Eris forum would love to get some of the features in 2.2 like bluetooth voice dialing (Finally!!!!) and flash (hopefully that's not one of things disabled).

    If nothing else, I want the new Dalvik subsystem. That is all.

    I believe it.. t-mobile just announced that all mytouch3Gs are getting the Froyo update shortly. The specs for that phone compared to the Eris are nearly the same. HTC announced that they are working on all the phones released in 2010, the carriers are working on which older 2009 models (anything still on the market like the mytouch, Droid and Eris) testing to see which ones are worth updating.

    Way to make wild assumptions based on no data. I love 2.1. It's a huge improvement over 1.5.

    Well, Verizon is still selling the Eris so far, so it doesn't seem EOL'd yet. If it stays like that for at least a month or two, the Eris may be a candidate for 2.2.

    I hope they bring froyo out too, so we can have a whole new mess of problems too bitch about before we even get a chance to work out the bugs in the upgrade we just got ;)

    It was?

    Thanks for the news release; I'll return my perfectly running Eris with the 2.1 OTA as soon as I get the chance.

    Well yeah, I'm surprised you haven't already. The only more epic failure that comes to my mind is the peanut butter and jelly in one jar thing. :D

    I'm sorry, but Willy ruined that for me, and even before Goober Grape existed.

    Sad, sad story warning.. I'll give you the abridged version:

    When I was 5, Willy was my pet, fuzzy little caterpillar. I thought he was immortal, of course, being 5.. anyway, I kept him in my pocket.

    I reached into my jeans pocket that afternoon to show him off to my mom and.. well, out came peanut butter and jelly (ok, what resembled peanut butter and jelly).

    So.. peanut butter sandwiches are fine. Jelly sandwiches are fine. Peanut butter and jelly, however, is squashed Willy.
