DROID & DROID Launching Today

motorola-droid_1Both the HTC DROID Eris and Motorola DROID are now available over on the Verizon store as of today. The Motorola DROID has been the phone to get the majority of the spotlight over the last few weeks and rightly so as it runs the Google Android 2.0 operating system that is a big upgrade from 1.5/1.6 that other phones have. One of the big features of Android 2.0 is Google Maps Navigation that provides a free turn by turn sat nav system for Android 2.0 based phones.

The Motorola DROID currently has an online price of $199.99 (that includes a $100 discount) based on a 2 year service plan. If you opt for a 12 month contract then the price is $269.99. Contract prices start around $39.99 although that is for a voice plan with an extra $29.99 being mandatory for a data plan. If you opt for a month to month plan the phone sets you back $559.99. Full prices can be found here.

The HTC DROID Eris runs Android 1.5 (no Google Maps Navigation) and is cheaper than the Motorola DROID. The phone costs $99.99 based on a 2 year contract while a 1 year contract will set you back $169.99 with the month to month costing $469.99. Full pricing details available over here.
