Droid Eris updates coming OTA

The Verizon Droid got its update this week, and now comes an update for the Droid Eris.

Here's what's coming down the pike, in the form of an over-the-air update, starting now:

  • While on a call and the phone's in screensaver mode, pressing the End key takes it out of screensaver mode. A second press ends the call.
  • In-call mute and speakerphone icon "enhanced."
  • First-call delay after initial activation should be fixed.
  • Better switch from 1x to 3G.
  • Don't have to select a default e-mail after a soft reset.
  • Better SMS and MMS delivery.
  • 80-character SMS and MMS subject lines now allowed.
  • Better picture messaging from LG phones.

As with the Droid update, this one will be trickled out. So if you don't get in the first batch initially, look for it in a couple of days. (Or, more likely, the manual method will present itself.)
