    Which Droid?

    I got my new Droid (Motorola) last Sunday. In the "deal" Verizon gave me a free HTC ERIS Droid. Seeing as I have never heard of HTC it is still in the box. Which do you have? What is the reason for your choice?

    Surprised you've never heard of HTC ...

    The Eris is a very competent device, but I picked the Moto Droid simply because it has more going for it. Hardware, style, community, etc. Hype is a good thing when the product can back it up

    If you dont plan on using that freebie, I have been looking for one. Id buy it off you if youre interested. I can afford a whole lot but if it was free anyway, its all profit right?
    Keep it open, keep seeding, never back down. This is our world, and I wont let you control it.

    The Moto Droid is the Daddy of all Android devices right now. HTC is a reputable brand too, but the Droid Eris runs Android 1.5 where as the Moto Droid runs Android 2.0. There are many hardware differences as well. But both are good devices. I have the Droid (moto) and I am and will be happy with this device for quite some time.

    Good luck getting unbiased (but probably true) answers

    If my son doesn't take it I'm keeping it for my wife or as a spare phone. I already put my new Motorola in my jacket pocket that was full of snow..............

    I thought you needed to have the phone activated to get the freebie. I dont think they will hand you a phone to put in your pocket as a spare but if they do thats awesome. My wife and I got our phones the same day. She got the Moto and myself the Eris. After using each for a weekend and getting to fiddle with each I brought my Eris back for the Moto. One reason stated above is the Andrios OS being inferior on the Eris. The 1.5 does not allow for step by step voice navigation but that is supposedly in the works for an upgrade to 2.0(.1?) Also the screen resolution is better on the Moto, the Eris has had many battery compliants (more than the Moto's from what I have read here). The big hit on the Moto is it's size not as pocket friendly as the Eris. The Moto comes with the 16G card vs the Eris 8G and the processor is spec'd a bit slower than the Moto on the Eris tho I dont know if you'd notice.

    Droid because I never heard of Eris like the OP. I would still have a Storm 2 if it wasn't for the fact that I was returning the S2 and store was crowded so I played with Droid on Display. I said I'll pass on the S2, Droid please.
