More leaked info shows HTC Droid Eris to launch at Verizon, November 6th at $99
We have already reported on info that shows a November 6th launch for the HTC DROID Eris at Verizon, for $99. Engadget has an anonymous tipster that passed along more leaked documents that seems to go along with the earlier information. Verizon's Hero variant will most likely be loaded up with Android 1.5 and Sense UI and come equipped with a 5MP camera, Wi-Fi and a 3.2 inch display. The 528MHz processor should keep things running smoothly and to make you feel good about the whole thing, Verizon will throw in a 8GB microSD card. The price is $199.99 but there is a $100 mail-in-rebate and for that price, you will need to put your signature on a 2 year contract. So it looks like Big Red will be launching its first two Android devices on the same day. Of course, the Motorola Droid will be sporting Android 2.0 and carries on its' back the heavy weight of being an iPhone challenger. The DROID Eris is more like your run of the mill Hero.

Could you not upgrade the 1.5 Android OS on the Droid Eris to the 2.0? Ever?

Nice to see the 1yr pricing. $120 after rebate and NE2 sounds good to me. That way I'm good to go come September 2010.

I am pretty sure the NE2 credit is only available for two year contracts

Oh snap. Here's to hoping info about the Passion is released come Thursday. I want my $50 credit, but I don't want to commit to the modestly spec'ed Eris for a full two years. Hmmmm. 3.5 years of living with this razr may not be coming to an end anytime soon after all.

I find it kind of puzzling to see that the device WITHOUT a hardware qwerty is the one with the smaller screen. I know this is just VZW's version of the hero, but, if a device isn't going to have a real keyboard, then at least give consumers the necessary real estate to type comfortably. Omnia HD and Touch HD 2 has got it right!

I love the fact that not every phone has a huge screen and a hardware qwerty. I hate having a huge phone in my pocket. There is already too many big things in my pants. I'll be getting this phone. Its just the right size and I can type fine on the hero keyboard so this will work out perfect.
