    you think it's worth it money wise? $200 vs the eris for $70? there isn't much a difference between the 2 other than ghz/ram. basically double

    Yes, you have to consider:

    It will be probably be a two year contract, the price difference does not amount to much in that time.

    The Eris has some pretty lackluster hardware(528MHz compared to 1GHz) - the implications of this should not be underestimated - the Droid Eris may be getting 2.1 but future firmware updates are uncertain, the Droid Incredible will probably be supported hardware-wise for longer.

    Also? The screen!

    Isn't the Droid Incredible the Droid 2?

    waiting never hurts. Incredible is brand new, but soon there will probably be better deals (like when droid/eris starting going buy one get one free) So if you can wait. I would, but if you need one now... Incredible is the way to go.

    Personally, I'd skip the Droid incredible.
    I'm not a big fan of Sense. In addition, Sense breaks the ability to sync multiple exchange accounts.
    Add in the fact that with the Incredible, I see duplicate contacts all through my contact list (after syncing 1 exchange, 1 imap because no two exchange accounts supported, and 2 gmail accounts), where as on my droid i have no duplicate contact problems...
    Personally, I really wish they had a stock android OS version of the incredible for Verizon. When is the nexus one coming, i can't wait.
    Sense UI is broken, IMO.
