We have both the Droid and the Eris in our house. Ok, wouldn't it be great to have Sense UI on the Droid? and, it would be great to have Droid's processor on the Eris. I feel like I could use the Droid as a self defense weapon if I had to because it's so darn tough and solid feeling. But the Eris is so slim and elegant. The Droid would fit right in being worn on a tool belt but the Eris deserves to be protected and admired. The real keyboard gives the Droid a real mini-laptop identity but the Eris is 100% touch screen with several downloadable virtual keyboards available. Bottom line for me? The Eris wins hands down. It's those intangibles that won me over. I have been a Moto guy since the good old StarTac days but after researching HTC, I choose the current and future promise of their technology. Sure, there will be more Android phones pouring into the market now and eventually the Eris will be old news. But, in the meantime, this little feature packed cool looking device is my choice to keep in contact with the world.
