I have been following the Droid since the first post on HoFo's first prerelease thread. I was convinced it was the phone for me, but then the nagging doubts began. To me Droid is the best out there in terms of speed and processing power, but the UI is not very attractive. Maybe not fugly but close. The fact that Motorola released the Droid with the camera issues it has and not having BT voice dialing working kind of makes me wonder if the Droid really isn't ready for prime time. I'm not sure after all this hype and anticipation that I want to deal with workarounds until these issues are fixed.
The ERIS' UI is beautiful. It looks like HTC will be upgrading to 2.0 in time. However, I don't know if I can live with the slower processor. Compared to the Droid, there isn't much information or many reviews on the Eris yet.
The Passion seems like it might offer the best of both worlds, but if it really exists, HTC has managed to keep a tight lid on it.
There have been hints to wait for a couple of weeks after the Droid is released and see what happens. I'm not sure what this means--perhaps the Samsung Android?
All comments would be welcome.
Ps. I just came across Droidforums.net, and this is going to be my first stop for Droid news. It is laid out better than other forums on the subject.
