Also called the HTC Desire, the Eris (and the Moto Droid) will be a part of a series of Google Android devices for Verizon Wireless. According to Gdgt, preliminary specs include a 5-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, EV-DO, a 3.2-inch display, and (thanks to the Boy Genius Report) a 528MHz processor. Official photos are nonexistent at this point, but the Eris should have a HTC Hero-like a trackball for navigation.
Verizon hasn't announced a release date, nor has the carrier even confirmed that the Eris exists. But the clever AndroidGuys got a tip that Verizon employees are receiving Eris training. That makes a rumored November 6 availability quite likely.
