    It wouldn't be the most shocking news I've ever heard.

    "at verizon wireless" it says. To ME that means that Verizon will be dropping the Eris from it's product line, not that the Eris is going completely. Even if it does it's not a shock. The phone is what, about 4 months old now. Technology moves on, pretty much anything is 'old' at 6 months...

    Not a whole lot of faith in rumors like that.

    there is a good chance, phones are a dime a dozen. heh. and if they can charge a little more for the phone, they will push the eris out the door and bring in the next one gladly.

    Anyone think this might be related to the lag on the ota update, if I fact this rumor was true? I love my Eris, but to have such a short run would suck..

    This is one of the most misfounded rumors ... like... ever. As I commented on that blog page, I raise the following argument:
    If the Droid Eris is a $99 way to jump into Android, why would Verizon drop this low-end low-cost model for the new high-end high-cost HTC Incredible?

    I rest my frickin' case.

    Clever of them to develop an update for release right about the time they discontinue the device.

    Value of rumor: $0.00.

    They kept the Blackberry 8330 Curve on the shelves for almost 2 years. The Pearl and 8830 WE were out for almost 3. Granted Blackberry wasn't spitting out phones like mad, but I can't see them ditching a phone for no real reason. Especially when they have to have them still in stock.

    Time for the Defense.
    The Eris and Droid have been in a pricing/BOGO freefall for the last few months. Eris is $80 for two right now. Makes sense if they are trying to make way for new models. I suspect that, if true, the Droid will become the entry level (w/BOGO's) and the Incredible the higher end model. Nexus will probably jump in too, but as a Google model. Get used to these things turning over quickly - this is goodness.

    Darn, I really like my Eris, it just doent seem to make a lot of sense to ditch the phone that quickluy. I got the phone because I needed a lower priced smart phone to get the job done and I assume there are more like me that did the same.

    All phones are in BOGO at Verizon right now. Storm2, Tour, Curve, etc aren't going anywhere right now though.

    That is exactly what I was thinking! If it is at all true, would the entry to the android experience on Verizon be the Devour? I like that phone, but that really makes it an April Fools Day joke, then!

    Any way we can go in saying our Eris isn't working right and then get the Incredible instead?
