    Damn me and my stupidity by leaving my stock phone charger in a hotel room and having to just buy a regular phone charger with no USB cable!

    But I probably wouldn't have done it anyway, I can wait and don't want to **** my phone up. I'll live with 1.5 for a few more weeks...

    So where are my fellow conspiracy theorists?

    Let's Start :)

    - Verizon has issues a few days ago with pushing 2.1 OTA so they delayed the release.
    2.1 was complete but they had failures pushing out to testers OTA.

    - Verizon has 3g Outage yesterday (Were they trying to push 2.1? :eek:)

    - Verizon/HTC give up trying to push it OTA and decide to have someone post 2.1 on the XDA site pretending they are from China, knowing that it will spread like wildfire.

    While it is spreading now by social sharing, it buys them a bit more time to work out the OTA kinks and keeps all of the phone calls/emails/and walkins from all us fanatics about 2.1. These are the people who will install the leaked version anyway :)

    Once the OTA kinks are worked out, 2.1 will be pushed out the the rest of the Eris owners who weren't calling HTC/Verizon daily and have a bit more patience. :)

    The visible unlock pattern is noticeably faster, i dont know if its cause its smaller or both, but it being smaller is a lot easier to get to! AWESOME!

    I noticed that the "More HTC Widgets" is not working. Also, the "News" and "Friends" widgets on the new Sense 2.1 is not there. So this doesnt look final to me.

    This is so tempting, but I think that I am going to have to wait for root. I just want to OC it.

    Sweet, you can turn off the haptic feedback on the 4 keys under the screen. I hated that haptic feedback.
