So I went to best buy to play with a Hero as I am considering getting an Eris for Verizon next week. I really like it, but I was unimpressed with the speed. It sometimes took 3 seconds to switch from portrait to landscape and scrolling before a web page was fully loaded was jerky. The pinch zoom was not nearly as smooth as I have seen on a iphone, but of course is far better than the double tap zoom on other android browsers. Could I have been using one without the speed enhancing firmware update?
