You had a good run HTC Eris. At least you weren't as non-effective and terrible as the MyTouch 3G or the Samsung Moment and definitely better quality than the Motorola Backflip/Devour. You will be missed dearly (not really tho).

Remember the days where Verizon would have the same phones for a couple years straight before discontinuing it? Verizon did that with phones that weren't even that great (not that this phone is superb) but now Verizon keeps a phone not even a year before its considered old and useless. Its crazy. But kinda good for customers who want great phones without the huge price tag bcuz now this will be basically on clearance and the same will happen to the DROID and Incredible soon. Verizon has evolved so much in just the past few years! I'm not sure its entirely for the better though. This android/arms race thing going on is insane. Also... How the heck did the HTC Imagio outlive this phone?

For real +1. Sprint is still trying to pass the Touch Pro 2 off for 199...as if. But that's the difference and one factor that makes Verizon a better company. To have almost double the customer base but still sell a phone to the precise bottom of the barrel to maximize profits and limit losses by poor marketing or high priced out dated phones. No latter which way you spin it Verizon is ALWAYS thinking about the customer.

The only reason the HTC Imagio is still a "current" model and the Eris is not is that there have not been any phones to replace the Imagio (yet). This is primarily because WinMo is garbage (at least in my opinion, and i've owned several WinMo phones).
