    Less expensive alternative to Droid?

    I'm good to go on "new every 2" plan but my wife who shares my plan must pay full price for hers, we both love the Droid but the cost is steep for that second phone. My phone would only be $149.

    Is there a compatible phone 3.7" 320x480 screen, Android etc, that doesn't have the slide out screen? We do little or no texting so I'm thinking a way to save some money might be to get a phone similar to the Droid but with an on-screen keyboard?

    Thanks....have a good holiday !

    the Droid Eris sounds perfect for you.... google that and see where/how you can get the best deal... they were practically giving them away with the NE2 contracts a few weeks back

    yes i have. I came from a Tilt before my Droid. Alot of people hate WinMo but i actually loved it. I think 6.5 is a huge improvement and don't think it would slow down as much as 6.0. I checked out the Imagio for a bit and it seemed like a good phone, but I went with the Droid because i grew tired of WinMo. I find Android to be the future of mobile devices so I went with it and have no regrets and will never go back to any other OS.

    Check out the Eris. Sound like it's exactly what you're looking for and it can do a lot of the same things that the Droid can (albeit a little slower).

    i had an Omnia with a custom 6.5 winmo rom it was ok i also tried to "HIDE" windows under every available UI upgrade. the best being SBP Mobile shell. but it still did not compare to my droid... not even close. so i just find it hard to encourage someone to buy something that i was trying to "FIX" the entire time i had it.

    The Droid Erie would be perfect for your wife, my wife loves hers.

    Verizon is having a BOGO sale now, by a Droid Eris get one free. If you purchased your Motor Droid recently, you may qualify to get her Eris free.
