It's the end of the line for the Verizon BlackBerry Tour 9630 and the HTC Droid Eris

The PCD ADR6200 appears on the list as going EOL in late May. That device is the HTC Droid Eris and under normal circumstances, letting the handset become extinct after a fairly recent November launch would seem strange. But with the HTC Incredible about to be introduced, the Droid Eris and it's 3.2 inch screen becomes obsolete. Both are Android phones and both are manufactured by HTC. But the Incredible has superior specs-including a 3.7 inch display-and the Droid Eris will not be able to compete with it.
Other names on the list include the Motorola A455 Rival which is no longer available, the Samsung i770 Saga Blue, U310 Knack (in May) and the U960 Rogue (also in May).

I hope they replace the Knack, that's a great phone for the older generation looking for a simple to operate cell phone.

See jrdumbass, Verizon doesn't abandon its customers, even with EOL. In fact, if you feel like you need a new phone, you can sometimes get an early upgrade, unlike other companies who rarely offer that.

Pulling the droid eris to me is the most compelling sign that the legend is coming to verizon. Not that's anything wrong with the eris, but i know i'd much rather be packing the unibody legend in my pocket.

The only thing that really belongs on that list is the Moto Rival A455. I'd like to slap whoever passed that device and let it on the network. The Eris (if not the Tour as well) could be sold as an entry-level smart phone for a lower cost. I can't imagine some people on budgets are going to be willing to drop $300 on the Incredible (or Moto Droid for that matter) before a rebate. That's why the Eris sold so well.

Why are they getting rid of the rogue? Is it because the samsung reality is coming out?
