At what point does the constant search for the latest, greatest phone come to a screeching halt (at least for a while)? After reading Nexus updates on forums, blogs, etc it appears sometimes things "ain't necessarily so". IMHO I think Google is competing against itself. I don't understand why they feel they need to sell their own proprietary phone when an alliance with Verizon is awesome to begin with. Of course, the Nexus is faster and has way more memory than the Eris, but at what cost? In terms of purchase price, connectivity issues, bugs, re-stocking fees, etc I am content with the Eris vs Nexus. I for one am happy to have a reliable package of carrier/manufacturer so that I can use my Eris as a mini-laptop for at least the next year or so. I know the Android market for phones and apps is going to explode wide open this year. It's going to be very interesting.
