Verizon has officially made the DROID Eris, Verizon's version of the HTC Hero, well, official. Like previous reports, the DROID Eris will release on November 6th for the low, low price of $99 (after rebate, with 2 year contract). We're unsure of why Verizon decided to wait until the day before to announce this puppy but the pricing is absolutely on point. It feels like Verizon is the only carrier who "gets" it when it comes to pricing.

The DROID Eris Specs are pretty much exactly like the Sprint HTC Hero--5MP camera, 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 3.2-inch multitouch screen, and Android 1.5--but the battery is now only 1300mAh compared to 1500 mAh on the Sprint HTC Hero. The four Android harware buttons are replaced by touch-sensitive buttons similar to the DROID.

The DROID Eris offers a great alternative to the DROID and a completely different experience. And make no mistake, this isn't some budget phone, this is still the same phone we deemed the best Android phone on the market only a month ago.

Who's buying a DROID Eris?

I've been searching for a phone for months since the Palm Pre was announced (which turned out to be a disappointment when released so I didn't purchase) but the Droid Eris seems to be more what I was looking for and it's on my carrier. So, yes, I'll be buying one tomorrow. Hope they still have it in stock when I get there tomorrow night! (stupid job!)

I don't get why everyone is going crazy after the Moto Droid... Its a basic phone with better hardware. Moto has always had great hardware but lacked a whole bunch in software. Droid is a basic android 2.0 phone unlike the Droid Eris that has a fully customized Andorid 1.5 OS... Id pick Eris over the Droid any day... HTC has already confirmed they are working on the Sense UI for Android 2.0.

Agreed. I wonder what is taking at&t so long. Maybe they are worried about Android taking away sales from the iPhone.

I can't remember any sprint hero users saying "Man I wish they would make the battery smaller".

I won't buy an Eris because I won't buy in Verizon. Aside from that, I'd choose the larger battery in the Hero over the slightly thinner Eris.
