    and so does Facebook. At the bottom of my Facebook app's homepage it says 'Download Facebook for your Desire ADR6200.'

    I also remember seeing something about ADR6200 on the receipt in the box that the phone came in today. I'll have to check again when I get home. Didn't think anything of it.

    Any idea why? Is this unusual?

    I think an alias for the the Eris is Desire. I believe it is/was listed as such on either HTC's website, or the site where we can download updates from. PCD? PDC?

    The Desire is (I believe) either the code name of the Hero/Eris or the actual name of the Eris before it was renamed by Verizon. Of course, there is a new HTS Desire coming that is not an Eris. So confusing.

    See this old story.

    I'm curious, have any of you downloaded "Facebook for your Desire ADR6200?"

    I haven't (yet) but contemplate doing so every time I see it at the bottom of the page.

    One of my favorite things about flashing Kaos Froyo was getting the email from Google welcoming me to Android with my Nexus One.

    I think its talking about the app. There is only one official Facebook app for Android, regardless of your phone model.

    Chevy calls it a Silverado and Gmc calls it a Sierra. Same difference. Just looks a bit different.

    I have noticed Facebook identifying the Eris differently throughout having it. With 1.5 it was called the Droid Eris. When i loaded the leaked 2.1 update, and started using ADW it was identified as the Nexus One (I always thought it was because of ADW), then later on it switched to the current Desire ADR6200. ADR6200 is the actual model number of the Eris.

    Regardless the facebook app is the same no matter which device Facebook thinks you have as the link will point you directly to Facebook in the marketplace.

    The Desire was the original name for the Eris before they changed it (i also think it's funny - deSIRE / ERIS). If you've ever seen the filename for the 2.1 OTA upgrade zip (OTA_Desire_C_Verizon_WWE_2.36.605.1_1.17.605.1_release_0420.79112f65) and the subsequent July 2010 OTA update zip (OTA_Desire_C_Verizon_WWE_2.37.605.4_2.36.605.1_release) you'll notice that it says Desire in it.

    Why they changed it i don't know, but the Desire became the name for the an HTC Android phone released in the UK.

    In a way i guess the Eris IS part of the Desire series of handhelds by HTC. :)

    Interestingly, the HTC Desire was codenamed the Bravo.
