I've been lurking this board for a few days now. I, just like the rest of you guys, can't wait for this mystery passion phone to come out; if it ever does. I'm in the midst of my 2 year contract with Verizon which ends in June. I'm eligible for a new phone on December 23. I'm hoping and praying that the Passion will be out by then. If not, it will be the Droid or the Eris. Right now, I'm looking more toward's the Eris. It and the Droid are suppose to be getting android 2.1 next Thursday, right? If that's the case, the only difference between the 2 will be the size. If I don't see the Passion, I will hopefully get the Eris.
