    I'm considering switching for a few reasons: smaller size, Sense UI, multitouch (makes a big difference in typing), trackball on front (rather than D-pad only accessible with keyboard out).

    These are the apps I have installed. Can someone do me a bigggg favor and check to see which are/are not available in the Eris's 1.5 market?

    Amazon
    PageOnce Assistant
    Astro
    Barcode Scanner
    Bonsai Blast
    Bump
    Cestos

    Facebook
    Flood-It!
    Foursquare
    Google Sky Map
    Google Voice
    Grid Droid
    Huffington Post
    Layar
    Lights Out
    Movies (Flixter)
    OpenSudoku
    Pandora
    Phit Droid
    PicSay
    Pocket Auctions for eBay
    Places Directory (Google)
    Robo Defense
    Shazam
    ShopSavvy
    Shot
    Solitaire
    Twidroid Pro (or maybe I could just use Peep?)
    What the Doodle!?
    WordUp!

    I know it's a big list, but if you could help with any, I'd really appreciate it!

  3. I don't have time to check the full list, but the ones in bold I *can* confirm are available on the Eris because they are ones I have installed and/or tried out on my phone. Hope that helps at least a little.

    You will find everything and more will be avail on eris. droid has less compatibility. i think Google Navigation is the only thing missing for the eris which will come as soon as HTC sends out the OS update.

    Other way around. There are apps that run on 2.0 and will not on 1.5.

    BTW, stopped in the Verizon store this afternoon and played with a Droid for about 10 minutes.

    DAMN that screen is nice.

    Touch keyboard still sucks.

    Phone is VERY bulky and annoying to hold.

    Sense UI is MUCH nicer.

    what apps are those currently? of course in the long run it would be that way but Eris will be updated by then. I have a droid and many more apps dont work on it properly that do on my eris. like CameraFX, Photoburst etc etc. There is nothing on the Droid yet that does accurate multitouch even close to HTC Sense.

    The only two apps that I would currently want that would work on the droid but not the eris is google nav and moto torch (because the Eris has no LED lamp)

    I agree with all of your other points. I have used Hero, Eris, Droid extensively and overall the Eris is much nicer, its just the proc that kills it.
