    Just wondering how people pronounce Eris. I prefer to say it as "Air-ess" but I've heard "Ear-ess" before too.

    I was also thinking about where that name came from and I guess they used the name HTC "Desire" and took the last four letters and spelled it backwards.

    As you can probably tell I've been thinking about this phone way too much....:rolleyes:

    I'm pretty sure it's Air-iss.

    But the manager at the Verizon store called it Air-ees. She sounded stupid.

    "Heiress" sounds prettier to me. I also refer to it as the female version of the droid.

    Yea, no.

    If the Droid is an Anglo Saxon, the Eris is a frickin Ninja.

    I don't want my phone being a girl, sorry :p

    It is Eh-ris, like Eris the Greek goddess...of discord and chaos. That's what I figured they named the phone for, which is awesome...yet an odd choice.

    If someone said "Air-ees" to me I'd be like "oh the astrological sign? No, try again."

    My husband say Eris is a girl phone! He calls it Air-Ass just to get to me!! Also if they took Eris from last four letters from Desire spelled backwards...does that mean when the Passion comes out they will call it "Nois"? LOL!! Just wondering!

    Good point Moonsbabe, but it could always be worse, just depends on the name of the phone. There again, i remember in the old days when it was a couple of letters and some numbers, that would be the model number of your phone, without some goofy name.

    I found a box up in the closet the other day and there were some old old cellphones in it. OMG they were huge and heavy! Antennas poking out everywhere! So funny how quick things change. Just ten years ago you wouldn't think little kids would be carring cellphones everywhere. But here we are! LOL!!
