they are referring to when the droid is showcased, not when it is available for sale

Yea. I too work for Verizon Wireless (call center) and we have had the chance to play with the Droid in the center however there is no official launch date. We have an official hands on training for this device, BB storm 2, and others next week. So it wont be launching till November.

Can this phone look anymore like a sprint hero? Or does sprint have exclusivity to hero? and thats why verizon is coming out with something exactly the same just renamed and a pinch different?

HTC lookalikes are not uncommon, it's just the way HTC makes phones

I gotta have this phone!!! I hope it gets released around the same time as the Droid.

this is actually going to be called the Eris.

Well, it has the same guts, but it's not the same phone. It's somewhat different than Sprint's Hero what with the soft keys and call/end buttons, and it's infinitely better than the ugly chinned Euro/World model that apparently AT&T will be getting early next year. If I was with AT&T and learned that was the first Android phone I'd have to wait that long for, I'd be signing with another carrier right now. Not sure why Sprint had to retain the Hero name with something largely different on the outside. Glad to see Verizon renamed there's.

they look the same but they are different in alot of ways i bet. it might have a better processor or something. its a different phone so why would they name it hero if its a new phone. also i liked the chin, it made the hero unique. the euro version looked cool. i hate that at&t is going to get that one but life is life. i hope htc can make a new phone more unique, i dont like the touch sensitive buttons at all. the solid looking like steel buttons on the front of the original hero was great. the perfect phone would be the touch pro 2 keyboard with htc heros buttons chin with or without, dont really care, sense ui, android, and a snapdragon processor.

When the HTC Touch Pro2 came 2 AT&T it was renamed the Tilt II. Same thing with the Touch Diamond2 and the Pure.
