Phones Review : Android is a new phone from Verizon, Eris Droid, sound familiar? Not only has a name almost identical to another Verizon phone Android, but it seems much like the hero HTC, launched in the U.S. on the Sprint network. The HTC Droid Eris adds to Motorola Droid on Friday, 6 Verizon stores in November.
The HTC Droid Eris is a solid alternative to the Motorola droid for several reasons. First, the $ 100 Droid Eris is available with two cost of a contract for years, making it the cheapest for Android mobile phone - and half price droid. Second, Sense Droid Eris slick HTC takes overlay user interface that is much more aesthetically pleasing than the rather sterile Android 2.0 (also known as Flash) interface. Finally, Eris Droid is lighter and the pocket of the droid. In my hands in a short time with Eris Droid, I thought it felt very comfortable in the hand with its curved, rubber-coated media.
In the department of information, which exceeds the Motorola Droid Droid Eris. The Droid Eris has no keyboard, small display of lower resolution (3.2 inches to 3.7 inches Droid mammoth in contrast) and a less powerful processor. The Eris Droid also comes with the Android operating system 1.5, which does not have all these on Motorola Android 2.0 Droid found, such as Google, navigation and a universal inbox.
The Droid Eris also has a huge amount of data and functions. As Motorola Droid Droid Eris has a camera of 5 megapixel with video recording capabilities and browser and download Eris Droid not support Flash Lite (although we had some problems loading some Flash contents of Heroes).
HTC has also said that they bring to the Android 2.0, both the hero and the plane of Eris Droid, but they must work some operational problems with the interface defined update. So if the Android 2.0, the biggest attraction of the Motorola Droid for you, you should ask yourself Eris Droid, you'll just have to wait a little kindness Eclair.
With the enthusiasm of the Droid Motorola has always been the Droid Eris are easily ignored. If you're going to your local Verizon store tomorrow morning to take the droid, Droid ignore Eris. It may suit your needs better than Droid - in the form and you'll spend less than expected.
