$99 price tag for Verizon's Droid Eris?
While most of the attention has gone to the Motorola Droid, Verizon has another Android powered smartphone expected to be launched alongside the Motorola handset on November 6th. The HTC Droid Eris is a variant of the manufacturer's Hero device. According to gdgt, they have a tipster who gave them the information that Big Red expects to price the Droid Eris at $99, most likely with a 2 year contract. If that sounds rather inexpensive, consider that Sprint's model of the Hero goes for $179.99. Of course, Verizon had to take the Droid into consideration when pricing the Droid Eris because the former is the carrier's top dog, flagship model for the moment and more than a $20 difference between the two phones would be the protocol. If true, it is a great offer for Verizon customers who want the Android experience but do not want to pay the Droid-like dollars for it.
