    1. Is there any way to copy a picture from the internet and save it to my Eris?

    2. I tried watching a trailer on IMDB and it was way too slow and choppy. Is that how any video will be or is there way to improve watching videos from the internet?

    1. Long press on the picture, then 'save image'.

    2. WiFi is typically faster (and therefore smoother video) than 3g. But I wouldn't say that streaming video is exactly one of the Eris' strong points.

    1. Long press on the picture and then save in the popup menu and it will download.

    2. Unfortunately. You watched it through Flash player. Flash player really isn't all that efficient, and the Eris not having a very powerful processor doesn't help. The videos on IMDb are meant for regular desktop computers and are not optimized for mobile devices. Now, not every video will be this choppy, like if you used the native Youtube app, or a video stored on your SD card, they will play perfectly fine. But its something you will have to keep in mind.
