Today I happened to pass by a Verizon booth at the local mall and they had the Droid and the Droid Eris both on demo. Since I already own a Droid I just causally picked up the Eris and started playing with it. Oh Boy.. was I impressed!! It really makes my Droid look like an early engineering prototype. So nice to hold and not that bulky or boxy. Pinch and zoom were functioning too. Easily at least 2 generations ahead of the droid in terms of polished software. I'd say far slicker than the iPhone too. The desktop somehow had this surreal 3D background effect.. i don't know how they do it. Now I am wondering if I should return the Droid and settle for the Eris. Do try it out next time you have a chance.
