    Ok so let's be honest, we all have or are getting 2.1, who cares, it's old hat. WHERE IS FROYO?! HUH VERIZON?! WHERE'S 2.2? DAMN YOU!








    :D

    Really? You want 2.2? The nexus 1 is just starting to talk about getting it. Most Eris users don't even have the official version of 2.1 yet.

    Get a life!

    It was a joke buddy. Take a deep breath and then let it out. Ok and another deep breath, and let it now.

    2.2 and flash may run like butter on the Nexus One, but it also has a stock 1GHz processor and more memory. So....it would run like molasses on the Eris. Me, I have to wait till September to get an Incredible or maybe I'll find on ebay for not to much. I NEED Snapdragon.

    I got my Eris in Feb (yes, should have waited), but with Verizon's upgrade every 12 months, it's no big deal.

    Please just let flash die already!! Hopefully the fact that Apple is essentially banning it from their devices, this will actually happen. Bring on HTML5!

    I'm assuming the forums here will now become like this since we are getting the official 2.1. I was wondering what they would be like, so now instead of all the 2.1 threads, we have a bunch of 2.2 threads? Meh.

    That's not going to happen anytime soon, just so you know. HTML5 won't be the standard for a long time.

    This is what has me interested.

    I can only guess that "without it" means on 2.1 or lower, which the numbers certainly suggest. Most of the highest numbers the guys running oc'd eris ROMS are getting are around 5 mflops on 2.1. That leads me to believe that the N1 should probably run at around 7 mflops on a stock handset. To me, it really looks like a testament to the speed and efficiency of the OS itself.

    Guys, Guys, we're off track here. Let's not discuss web standards, let's rant and rave about not having snapdragon, or 2.2.

    It's not gonna matter for us because as soon as they EOL our Eris'...which was what...last month? Then we have to throw our phones in the garbage because we will no longer be supported and our phones won't work. ;)

    I didn't claim it was the best joke ever. I just merely wanted to stir the pot. Who decided you were the demigod of jokes anyway?

    WOW, who need to relax and take a deep breath now? True I'm no comedian but you were treading on pretty shaky ground stirring the pot with mention of 2.2. Remember good air in, bad air out.

    Sorry, I'm taking out aggression on you.

    One of my employees asked me to to put some music on. Being the good boss that I am, I obliged. However they asked for Nickelback. Now there's @%^##$@ Nickelblack blaring through the office. It's coming from my last.fm app and I'm concerned that all the hard work I've put into creating a more perfect library is being ruined.

    pray for me.

    Here's a good reason to want Froyo on our phones:

    We are probably never going to see 2.2 on the droid eris. We are sorta lucky to even get 2.1 considering that the phone is EOLed at the end of the month.

    Its a great smartphone nevertheless and 18 months left till a upgrade anyways

    Once it gets officially released, I bet you'll see a leaked version or maybe a rooted version that will work on the Eris, IMHO.

    I would like to see it as well, especially after seeing that it allows for a 420% (or something?) speed increase. However, I doubt it will ever come to Eris.
