    We have been bugging Verizon Wireless and HTC to see if the Droid Eris would be getting Android 2.0 and they have been reluctant to confirm any details, until today. InformationWeek has just received a new statement from Verizon that finally confirms what we have been waiting for.

    Sounds about right. End of the quarter is in March. If the reports of a Jan. update are correct it could be sooner. No one knows with absolution.

    I was in the Verizon store on Saturday and the lady helping me said they are expecting the update to hit begining/mid January. Apparently it will update our system a bit more than what the Moto Droid has. :D

    From my experience working in sales and dealing with the people front line in sales of different stores, I wouldn't put a lot of faith in what the sales person says. Not only does information get passed down a company's grape vine jarbled, but they are not made aware of changes or delays in most cases made later.

    Not true. The Droid will always stay one step of the Eris in terms of OS. You don't spend $100 million advertising a product and allow another device to step ahead of it.

    correcting spelling/grammar/context of other posters online shows weakness.

    Advertising means nothing in regards to what phones are ready for what OS and the like. I would assume the Moto DROID will always have the latest OS as it is run in it's vanilla format.

    The time it takes HTC to adapt Sense for the new version is a hindrance, but you never really know what might happen.

    IMHO I would rather wait for a "Sensed" android install then be stuck with stock android.

    I love the Eris and went with it over the Droid for a number of reasons. But the decision for the Droid to always be ahead of the Eris is not a technical one. That decision was made at the VZW corporate level. I'm just saying the Eris will not upgrade to 2.0 until the Droid has moved past that OS.

    Damn your state, I have like 5 tickets for speeding there in the last 2 year LOL.

    I understand your wanting proof as I would surely would want the same. However, the information in my possession comes from a good friend under NDA so I cannot risk his job. But that being said, the proof will be in the pudding.

    Looks like the Droid is getting an upgrade (albeit minor) today!

    Try to follow along - i quoted jlevy73 who said "I'm just saying the Eris will not upgrade to 2.0 until the Droid has moved past that OS"

    So - does 2.0.1 count? Heck, i sure don't know, but it is movement forward (albeit minor, like i said). I don't even know if what jlevy73 said is correct:D

    Yes - i'm ready for an upgraded OS - just like you.

    I for one can back JLevy73 if its the same person i think it is and we go back awhile and yes his info is credible. #justsayin
  23. Price of the phone is not an issue. People need to know they will be paying min $80 per month for voice and the required data plan if they buy the Eris. With much need features most will be paying $90 per month....

    That's what those corrected would say. But they would be wrong.
