I’ve reviewed the Droid Eris twice before, when it was called the Hero. The difference is that Verizon’s selling it for half the price, making it the cheapest Android phone you can buy — and the best, for the money.
HTC’s Droid Eris, one of the worst–kept secrets in recent memory, is coming to Verizon November 6 for $US99. Essentially a rebranded Hero, it shows just how fast time flies: Last month’s Android champion is this month’s killer budget option.
A lot of attention has been lavished on the Motorola Droid today—and rightfully so—but it’s merely the “cornerstone” of Verizon’s Droid family. HTC’s Droid Eris is gonna be the cheap stepbrother, at 99 US bucks.
