A year ago this Eris forum was abuzz with non-stop chatter speculating about when Android 2.1 would arrive on the Eris and how wonderful life would be if only our little cupcakes had 2.1. Even the most trivial piece of news about the OTA upgrade would spawn scores of comments. Eris fans couldn't sleep because they knew 2.1 was somewhere in the future... BUT WHEN! Come on Verizon WHEN! Then an early version of 2.1 was leaked and everybody went nuts. Posts would come in fast and furious and within an hour or two fill many pages. Yes, these were heady times. Fast forward a mere three hundred and sixty-five days and the Eris is a relic. It's well past its prime. It will receive no more firmware updates and there are dozens of devices that are better in nearly every respect, some better in every respect. The A-Squad of forum posters have all moved on to greener pastures. Of-the-Damned, Caddyman, Frisco, etc. have all found new interests. The Eris forum is quickly turning into a ghost town. A place about as exciting as the Packard Plant in Detroit Michigan. Everybody remaining is just treading water until their Verizon contracts are up. How quickly we turn on our friends. Yes, the Eris is still a decent handset and it works for me but honestly, I long for the excitement of the olden days of yester... well, make it... last year.
