HTC DROID Eris November 6

HTC DesireVerizon have officially announced that they will be offering the HTC DROID Eris and that it will be launched tomorrow on their network. The DROID Eris is another version of the HTC Hero and has a 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen along with a 5 megapixel camera, EVDO Rev.A and it uses the HTC Sense user interface.

For storage the HTC Eris has a microSD card slot with an 8GB microSD card being provided in the box. The phone unfortunately does not run the Android 2.0 operating system which of course means it will lack the fancy new Google Maps Navigation that the Motorola DROID will be getting.

Other features of the phone are fairly standard for a phone of this calibre with GPS and a digital compass being available for location based services and tracking.

Price wise the phone is quite a bargain costing just $99.99 after the usual stupid mail in rebate of $100. Also a two year agreement will need to be signed which is standard.
