    I've been waiting for this phone since before thanksgiving. I gave up and bought the Erie. All I have to say is I am very happy with this phone. No buyers remorse at all.

    Could still be coming. Seems like it would basically be a N1 on Verizon though, which would kind of undermine Google's latest efforts with that particular phone. The Eris is a nice little phone though, can't say you made a bad decision.

    Glad everything worked out for you. I'll continue to wait as 1-3 months is still shorter than the 20 months once I'm locked into a contract.

    Why not at least wait for CES to finish?

    The eris is great... once it gets 2.0, it will be even better.

    I don't doubt that on the software side but my #1 hang-up is the screen size which would be a step backwards for me. No software update is going to increase the display size.

    I gave up last month. Eris is a good phone. I still got to the 15th if I hear some concrete news about a better phone coming out soon, but to be honest, if i had something with more power, I still wouldn't do anymore with it than what I'm already doing. I mean, in the end, it's still simply a phone.

    I'm getting my Droid on Saturday because my AT&T contract is finally up. I hope any new HTC phones come out within the 30 days after that....

    Well for those of you who can not wait and have jumped ship to the Droid or Eris. Meet the Droids replacement that Moto is getting ready to release. Or cheaper counter part.

    More specs for Motorola Droid Devour leaked

    Me personally I am giving it to the end of the month. If nothing comes out, then I am calling the verizion CEO to tell them their phone selection blows a$$ and getting the Eris.

    I really don't think that's the Droid's replacement. It's suppose to be a mini-droid that reaches out to a different crowd. Why would they "replace" droid only after a couple months?

    Agreed.

    To me, that thing is just as awkward as the Droid.

    Motorola is likely releasing two new Android devices...one will be Droid Jr I believe, with a keyboard and the other either a Sholes-esque device with touchscreen only or a wholly different phone

    I gave up too. Just ordered the Motorola Droid today on a 1-yr. contract, and can't wait to get it. At this point, it looks like the earliest we'll get any sort of phone is March, and I can't wait that long, for the N1 or the Passion/Bravo/Incredible. By the time my 1-yr. is up, there should be something even better waiting, but I'm sure my Droid will serve me well until then.

    Cheers!

    Technically my 2 year contract isn't up until July 11th, but they always let me do the NE2 4 months early. So that put's it at March 11th. Well... I got something in the mail and email that I could upgrade to a smartphone now. So I upgraded to the DROID on Dec 28th!! With all the rebates too. So, yes, I think they should let you do it a day early :)
