Today Verizon Wireless spokesperson Brenda Raney said in an email to Phone Scoop that the HTC Droid Eris will be updated to at least Android 2.0 — with Google Maps Navigation and Sense UI — during the first quarter of 2010. Depending on the timing, the Eris may even be updated to Android 2.1. The Droid Eris currently runs Android 1.5.

Question...now or wait?

i was thinking of getting the Moto Droid, but the Eris is a better feeling phone...but I wanted Android 2.0 ...

If the Touch Pro 2 were to come out with Android, I'd buy that one in a heartbeat...

thanks, jen.

current unit being sold, or will it just be an OS upgrade to all the Eris phones?

I ask because VZ is doing a 2 for 1 sale on the Eris like they're trying to get ride of the current models. So I was wondering if the 2.0 Eris would be a slightly different phone.
same model....current deal is awesome promotion

so that means the hero should be updated soon?

ohhh yeah.
Depends on Sprint. Remember, even though they are basically the same phone, each carrier has different ways they approve upgrades. Now, if you have a Rooted Hero, you should be able to get the update no matter what, but as far as official updates, y...
