    Not saying screw the Eris, the ui is really slick. But a big reason why I got the droid was it has 2.0. It was a big selling point in all reviews. Do we droid owners get anything?

    Umm yes... I hope all Android phones get 2.0. And plus i think googles goal is for Android to be to phones what Windows is to computers. Pick a phone u like for its hardware cuz pretty soon there is gonna be a army of android phones that will all have the same software.

    I agree that all android phones should run the same software. It makes it easier to develop for and will lead to better, less buggy apps.

    This makes no sense to me. Why would Droid owners "get" anything while older Android devices get 2.0? The Droid already has 2.0. What made you think that 2.0 would be exclusive to the Droid? I have never run across anything making such a claim.

    yawn. People who need to feel superior crack me up. You aren't special and your droid certainly doesn't make you special. I wish my life was so simple this was even on my list of crap to complain about.

    I wasn't trying to feel like that jackass. I was lead to believe the Droid woul have 2
    0 and not the Eris.

    By who? Your imagination? Since the announcement of both I have heard that the Eris would get 2.0. ANy device capable will get it.

    When I was doing research for which phone to get that is what I read
    that the Eris couldn't run it. Do you need to keep belittling me cause I dont appreciate it. I like my Droid but that was one of the deciding factors.

    Well being today is December 5 you can't be outside of your 30 day return period so either go back to the store you bought it or call *611 and say you want to return it for the eris.

    more devices running 2.0 = more apps as developers have more of a reason to create 2.0 software exclusively

    If you like your device, what does it matter if another one gets it? This makes zero sense. It all comes back to you needing to feel special about having something someone else doesn't.

    You were not mislead. You misinterpreted the information. That's no one's fault but your own.

    You still have a keyboard, faster processor, better screen, better battery life, and a better quality piece of hardware.

    Get over it man.

    And Dell computers should be the only computers that get to run Windows 7, right?

    maybe Google will release 2.1 to the Droid at the same time they release 2.0 to the Eris, just to appease the OP,


    sorry, couldn't resist...

    Seems like the more phones that have it will make for better apps

    Apparently.

    I'd wager you're the only one expending any brain power over this "issue".
