Having tried out both the Droid and the Eris at the store, I ended up getting the Eris and I couldn't be happier. The keyboard is much easier to type on, and I really liked the size and feel of the phone so much better than the Droid.
I went in to buy the Droid, and came out with the Eris. Another customer walked in with me, with the same intentions...to purchase the Droid...and walked out with the Eris. So..I know that must be happening more frequently than many may think.
i dont know why any one would buy the eris.. such u lesser model..
Yeah, because loading a web page 3 seconds faster is the shizz! The Eris does everything the Droid does, big deal it is a little slower. The software with the Eris is superior, as is the build quality and the virtual keyboard. Technology changes fast. Last month the Hero was the best Android phone on the market, this month its Droid. Next month its going to be something else. You cant keep up with the technology.
I used both and the Eris won, hands down for me. " Why would anyone want the Eris over the Droid?" Have you tried them yet? To say it's such a lesser model is funny. Ofcourse the Droid comes w more under the hood but that doesn't mean the Droid is better. That cheap keyboard and the fact it's made by Motorola is enough to argue the Eris wins.
