The Verizon Droid Eris, Big Red's version of the HTC Hero, has been captured again in live photos and though it's priced at the 'low-end' at $99, it has all the charm and appeal of a 'high-end' device. As you can see in the photo above, the Droid Eris will definitely run HTC Sense and pack all the niceties that comes along with Sense. We also have the first picture of the Droid Eris box (after the jump) which confirms the Droid Eris name and the 'Droid' brand that Verizon is pushing.

Also, the final details have leaked in regards to the Droid Eris and it's everything we expected, meaning it packs the exact same specs as the Sprint HTC Hero. Here's the rundown: 528 MHz processor, 3.2 inch, 320x480 screen, 5 megapixel camera, and Android 1.5 with HTC Sense. The only difference, other than the casing, is that the Droid Eris will be offered at $99 while the Sprint HTC Hero is being sold for $179. Does anyone hear a price drop?

More pictures and leaked details after the jump!

It says it comes a pre-installed 8GB microSD card. That's a change from the Hero, which only comes with a 2GB.
