    how do they compare? I had the eris for 29 days and honestly started to hate it....texting was so hard due to the keyboard being slow and just not that easy to type with.

    Plus the buttons drove me nuts with that little vibration thing they did....it was not a real pleasant phone to use...i am hoping for so much more from the Incredible.

    Well, the user interface will be identical as they both have Sense UI. The Incredible may be a bit different due to Android 2.1, but I am not sure.

    As for keyboard lag, that should be gone as this phone is WAY faster than the Eris. The keyboard will be the same, so if the touch screen keyboard is an issue you may want to consider the Droid as it has a slide out Qwerty.

    I have an Eris, and yes, it is slow. Trading up to the Incredible, so that should solve the speed problem.

    For typing, I replaced thw stock keyboard with Swype. Swype is a pretty efficient to typing.

    There will be some changes and upgrades with sense with 2.1. Also, the Incredible has a bigger screen which makes typing easier than the eris. I don't think the eris is bad for typing though as long as you hold the phone sideways.

    The Incredible is about 4 times faster than the Eris. Even 5 times in certain apps. It's a all due to the snapdragon CPU in the incredible. The eris hardware was already obsolete when the phone was released.

    you DO know the incredible isn't out yet, right? plus, you could turn off the vibration on everything on the eris except the 4 touchscreen keys on the bottom of the phone.

    Not trying to flame, but aren't those the only buttons on the eris? Besides the volume and trackball. :thinking:

    I would look up a youtube video of the Nexus One. The Incredible should be very comparable to that.

    Edit: Better yet, the HTC desire is the same phone.

    I had an Eris for exactly 30 days and 2 days before I returned it I downloaded a BETA version of Swype and I found it to be INCREDIBLE! One of my primary complaints of the Eris (next to the speed and OS version) was the size of the screen. Swype made typing much more enjoyable and I have secured my beta swype for the Incredible when I get it Thursday morning. :D

    I beta test product for a couple of CE manufacturers and beta versions are almost always buggy. The beta version of Swype that I used was almost perfect as far as I could tell and it took about 30 minutes to be VERY efficient using it. IMO that is very quick.

    FYI - I have no affiliation with Swype.

    +1 on the Eris being a slow piece of leftover junk. Cant wait to upgrade.
    Also a HUGE +1 for Swipe, Just hope its ready for the Incredible, I am even willing to pay for it. Not sure I could type without it now.
