Verizon BOGO deal gives DROID ERIS only as second phone
More information has been obtained on the BOGO deal starting tomorrow at Verizon. Buy a Motorola DROID or an HTC DROID ERIS and you can get a DROID ERIS free with the activation of a new phone line and your signature on a 2 year contract. Earlier speculation had Big Red giving a buyer of the DROID the opportunity to get a second, free version of that phone, but this is not the case. Still, you are getting a free Android handset and that is surely better than getting nothing. So if you are planning on picking up either of the two Verizon Android phones, and you need that second line, might as well do it between Friday and Monday and pick up that free ERIS.

I agree with the concept, but storm 1 to storm 2 is a bad example. That said I'm the guy that upgrades every 9 months. Sometimes more often then that, there is always some feature I've been waiting for. I'm holding out right now for the new Tour 2 / Bold 2 / Essex (whatever you want to call it).

BooHoo... I only get a $480.00 phone for free rather than a $550.00 phone... cry me a river. Free is free people, all you have to do is sell your soul for 24 months, so if you are someone who has to upgrade every 8 months I wouldn/t do this. If you are content with a solid top of the line phone and wouldn't mind waiting until the 3rd generation later, DO IT! I personally don't see why people have to always buy the slightly better version, why not just wait and buy the way better version later? I still have my 6900/Vogue/Touch and I don't see anything worth upgrading to WinMo-wise until the HD2. Sure I could have bought the diamond or the imagio, but why? They are not that much better, just a little better when you look at the big picture. 400mHz/528mHz, 128/192/288. I prefer to leap from 400-1028 and 128-488. That seems like a much better device if you ask me and I will appreciate it more and continue to hack it for years to come. :D

Isn't this an article about 2 Android phones?

Yes I was stating that I think this is a good deal and a 2 year contract isn't a bad thing. I was using my personal experience to try and show why 2years with the same phone isn't a bad thing. My brother upgrades every time a new model comes out and he is trading for a slightly better phone each time. So upgrade away if you want android and wait for the Droid 3 or the Eris 3 as the Droid 2 and Eris 2 won't really offer that much better of an experience... Look at the storm 1 and storm 2.

I wouldn't use the Storms as examples. They have MAJOR improvements, not some sissy upgrades to the operating system like the iPhone! BB Storm2 is LEGIT.

are you kidding me? the sw is the same only difference is wifi and the new screen. RAM, processor, camera, are all the same.
