    It was always known that the eris was getting 2.0. Was stated before i even got my droid that it would get 2.0 and i got mine at release day. They stated because Sense UI was not up to date, they didn't want it to get 2.0 without it. So they waited until they could port 2.0 over to the eris before they upgraded to 2.0.

    Your asking what does the droid get that eris 2.0 won't? Maybe be ahead of it by 1 updated? Droid users are going to 2.0.1, will the eris get this update, noone knows. But the 2.0.1 update is there to fix errors, and a few other things. I believe what you misinterpreted was that it DID come with 1.5 ot 1.6 or whatever version it came with. They just weren't getting 2.0 as soon as the droid was, because of sense ui. No one ever said they weren't getting it, and if there was a rep that told you that, then that rep was a moron.
    Resistance is futile.

    You can always return the moto and get the htc. But i like having a flash for the camera and flashlight. Like the screen, speed, keyboard, micro usb, car mount and the dock. The moto is just a better package. If you want another home screen try home++, gde,and a slew of others. I personly like stock 2.0

    I'm glad more phones are getting 2.0, it will attract more android users and spur app development further along.

    As for the Eris, I don't care what it's running- I'd much rather have a Droid.

    I'm glad the Eris is getting 2.0. It will give developers more reason to make apps 2.0 compatible and it will also give everyone more choice between hardware without having to sacrifice the software. Now if someone likes the Eris they don't have to think "damn but it doesn't have 2.0".

    Plus if you want to be superior or whatever, you still have a keyboard, a bigger screen, a higher resolution, a higher mp camera with a flash, a glass touch screen, a faster processor, etc.

    No one ever said that the Droid was the only phone that would ever have 2.0. You didn't pay enough attention. The Droid was the FIRST phone to get it. It was also the ONLY phone to have it for a WHILE, not FOREVER.

    exactly and it will draw more devs to the platform because of a unified OS.

    easy to develop for one OS than 3 +

    Sinn in our army you have demonstrated one good quality...that you actually care.

    Now do not let anyone else change your opinion. Like I have said in various threads....we want an army/and not a democracy fill of infidels.

    My dad got me a new bicycle...and two months later he got my brother a bicycle, too. I was misled, because I was under the impression that my brother would not be getting a bicycle. I asked my dad to take back my bicycle, because my brother has one, too, now. I am no longer unique in that regard, so I had him upgrade my bicycle to a tricycle.

    C WUT I DID THUR?! AMIRITE OR WUT?

    Oh, wait.

    More people running 2.0 = More development for the platform (APPS APPS APPS!)

    How can this even be considered a bad thing? Right now 2.0 is a single supported device... so unless you've got a DROID there's no vested interest in 2.0. Put it on every Android phone We'll all benefit.

    One must give the OP some credit.

    In our army we need beings who care and who want to push forward. Then there are those who become complacent..those are the infidels- they come for the ride but cannot be relied upon. He has invested himself...and he should not be discouraged.

    Sure, he was misled. Us as humans are prone to deception. This is the nature to our physical existence. We have been led to look for all our answers within the empirical world.

    What makes the Droid the Droid is not the pieces of puzzle. It is the puzzle as a whole. It is not about the existence of humans on this Earth, but humans as entities within the Universe and Cosmos as a whole.

    It is not about the operating system, just as it is not about the screen size, processing power, and any other physical "spec" one can name. It is the phone as a whole...Droid Does.

    We are here to battle.
