Verizon introduces its second Android, the HTC DROID ERIS
It is now official that Verizon has collaborated with HTC for the development of the second Android phone to run on its network. Just as it was rumored, Big Red has announced that the Sense-powered HTC DROID ERIS will be available, starting tomorrow with a price tag of $99.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The HTC DROID ERIS will be a great alternative to those Verizon customers who would gladly get themselves an Android phone, but would rather bypass the stock interface of the operating system. Its main selling point (in addition to the more affordable price) is the manufacturer’s Sense interface, which offers some nice integration with Facebook and Flickr. Users will be able to do stuff like link their contacts with their respective Facebook profiles and view Facebook and Flickr galleries directly from the phone’s built-in application. To learn more about the Sense UI, check out our review of the HTC Hero for Sprint.

As for its hardware goodies, the HTC DROID ERIS will sport a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, 5MP camera, microSD slot (comes with a pre-installed 8GB card), 3.5mm jack and Wi-Fi.

Expect our hands-on with the HTC DROID ERIS soon!
