    I have a question; if the HTC Desire getS 2.2 in June (supposing it ACTUALLY DOES HAPPEN), is it totally out if the question that this version of 2.2 can be ported over to the Eris?

    I've always thought that the Eris and the Desire were almost the same(ish) phone, so is it possible?

    That's what is really confusing. Its safe to assume they mean the Desire that's equivalent to a Incredible. However, the Eris' codename is DesireC.

    See? Thats what I always thought. From what I understand, Sense UI is what takes so loooong to port over when getting Android updates, so I was just thinking, if it manages to get done for the Desire, maybe it can be 'scaled down' or 'ported' to the Eris.

    I think it was just a poor/confusing naming decision on HTCs part... as most of us have grown to know, HTC gives each device two names; a "codename" and an actual phone name. The Droid Eris was "codenamed" the Desire, but the phone was named Droid Eris. The phone that is named the HTC Desire was codenamed the HTC Bravo.

    See this wikipedia table:
    List of HTC phones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So they are different phones. The Desire (I think) is Sense based with Nexus One-like hardware that was released for non-US markets. (Although wikipedia says it is coming to the US next month).

    I posted this in another thread today, but during development, the Eris was known internally at HTC by the code name Desire. Verizon decided to call it the Droid Eris. Apparently, HTC really liked that name, because when they released the phone that was code named the Bravo, they officially released it as the HTC Desire.

    I am 100% sure that when HTC says that the Desire should see a FroYo update in 2010, they are referring to the phone code named the Bravo, with the 1 GHz Snapdragon, AMOLED display, and trackpad, and they are not referring to our little device.

    either way, its ultimately comes down to Verizon pushing the update to our phone

    No one has ported a Desire rom yet, So I don't know if they would port a Froyo Desire rom.

    Isn't Desire spelled backwards Erised?
