Motorola DROID and HTC DROID ERIS now for sale
Well kiddies, the wait is finally over as Verizon Wireless has officially released its first two Android-powered devices, the Motorola DROID and HTC DROID ERIS. We first saw the Motorola DROID in New York last week and were impressed by its features and overall quality, as we pointed it out in our Full Review. Then yesterday we got a hands-on look at the HTC DROID ERIS, which was also impressive, thanks to the Sense UI interface. Now both of them can be yours.

I'm dealing with the same thing. I've already bought the accessories for it but just waiting for the phone to come available.

It'll let you buy it new but when you click to upgrade then it throws you back to select a phone and the Droid is gone, WTF?!

I love how many Bakersfield ACN reps get thier upgrades in my store as they don't want to wait for the mail. Does it take forever or something? They give up valuable points cause they are just as impatient as the rest of the world! :D

I believe the VZW website shows that it has 512 MB ROM and 288 MB DDR RAM... HTC's website confirms this too

I even tried to fool the computer by going to phones and plans and it shows up there, but then you go to upgrade and it disappears again :(

13. JasonLegend00

Posts: 31; Member since: Nov 06, 2009

Yup, I tried all that. I went to the store and they already had one available to play with. And after messing with it, I just have to have it. VZW needs to get their act together cause it wants to come hometo me already!!

Ok, i'm getting tired of trying back and forth and no luck upgrading to The Droid. Maybe I should just settle for the subpar Chocolate Touch.
