I second that! I played with the Eris two days ago, for the second time, at the Verizon store and I seriously wanted it SO BAD! If I had no knowledge that a faster phone with a bigger screen was coming, I would already own the Eris and honestly, it's not a bad phone at all. The web browing experience on the LIVE phone that they had activated, was AMAZING! Seriously, check it out and I bet you'll be hooked. We'd all probably have the Eris or the DROID if we hadn't gotten wind that a much faster phone with a bigger screen and 720p video capture was coming to Verizon soon. We've all been waiting a couple of months, but it's totally going to be worth the wait. But the Eris is honestly a great phone. It's just going to pale in comparison very soon when the new phones are released this year. I would suggest holding out if you can.
