Droid Eris Now Available With 2.1 OS...

...Just thought I'd pass that on. I was just browsing in my local Verizon store today asking when the Eris was going to be updated from 1.5 to 2.0 or 2.1. Much to my surprise (and happiness) the answer was, "it already has been."

So now I am a proud owner of the HTC Droid with the 2.1 OS which includes free google maps navigation. $79 takes it away. I looked at the Moto Droid but it felt like a brick and it just didn't feel right in my hands. Plus I despise sliders. As soon as I put the Eris in my paw, I was in love. It just felt "right."

Anyway, just thought I'd let you guys know in case you were waiting for the Eris to have the latest Android OS. If you were, wait no longer!

I Wasn't Kidding

If you want to think this was an April Fools joke, feel free. But I'm telling you that the Eris I picked up today is Android 2.1. I looked it up in settings and it's there. Also it has turn by turn Google maps navigation. And we all know that the Eris with 1.5 didn't have that. If you want more information, PM me.

verizon eris with 2.1

Its no joke - I also have the updated eris. I believe theres an HTC update that SOME verizon shops are loading on the eris. I've had use of all the navigation etc, but I`m not sure if all of the calling systems are working properly Ive had numerous call lock ups and have had to pull the battery

So much for folks who took the gamble with VZ

Wow!
This doesn't seem fair to all of us who took the gamble and bought the Eris back in January, having been promised the update within weeks!
