    I love Android, but I can only hope HTC makes a similar phone for Verizon.

    This screen and interface look incredible. Snapdragon CPU. Too bad you are stuck with WinMo apps.

    Only thing worse than WinMo is that it is not going to Verizon any time soon (I think).

    So how many hours until this beast of a Snapdragon needs a recharge?

    And no physical keyboard, right?

    If you want Sense UI and Android (v. 1.6), you can get the Eris from VZW as of tomorrow.

    If you want Sense UI and Android 2.0 you can wait for the much rumored HTC Passion, which is supposed to come to VZW for the holiday shopping season.

    I saw mentioned in another post that a "google experience" phone (standard/base UI) will/might be easier to upgrade to a new UI (such as the Sense)?
    ive got this issue with wanting to constantly change my phone around, ive rooted just about every single phone ive owned going back to my old Razr, its something that I really enjoy doing, ive had my Storm for allmost a year now and im jonesing to play with an open source operating system.

    if thats the case, I might be better off getting a droid and rooting it when ever its possible and updating the UI

    I would kill for a phone with that look, form-factor (and even just equivalent specs of DROID) on Android 2.0.

    I don't hate the look of the DROID, but that phone is very nice on the eyes.....

    Phone has a nice look to it, atleast on the physical sides of things. But I really dont like the UI, just too much of a "user friendly" look almost like microsoft vista has, and just like 99% of the world, I HATE vista lol. Also, have to say I like how the droid seems to be a bit faster between windows and just in general menus without having to use a task bar to navigate. Just my views, looks like an interesting phone, but I'm on the "Motorola Droid" forums for a reason :D

    Remember that's running WinMo. On Android you would get the same feel as the HTC Hero (or Eris) with the Sense UI, which from all accounts I have heard is pretty badass...

    "Battery life on the HD2 is better than you'd expect from a phone with a 1230mAh battery, lasting longer than a day, but not by much."

    From a UK review, Just Google HTC HD2 battery life.
