I so hate April Fools.
...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!
