    That does look really nice a sleek! I haven't seen the specs on this one (I also haven't looked). Besides the obvious, how different is it from the Moto Droid?

    I beleive it is Big Red's version of the Hero from sprint, and i think it is running Android 1.5 right now. Here are the specs for the Hero.

    to narrow it down a bit more.. the Eris is running android 1.5 and is the SENSE UI, which just means pretty. there is no physical keyboard, but you do get a trackball, if that tickles your fancy. it's not the latest greatest hardware, but by most accounts, it is nearly as fast as the motorola and about 1300 times faster than any blackberry. well maybe not, but still fast!

    I'm using a Curve right now, so either will be an amazing improvement. I have been playing around with a friends G1 so I don't think this will be much different. The specs also show the same app memory as the Moto, so that is cool. I did notice that it will only come with an 8GB card and has no flash on the camera either. The Sense UI is a big plus though. Hmmmmm

    if you like the G1, stick with the motorola... unless you never use the physical keyboard.

    I am begging my wife to get this, (so I can play with it!:p), but she isn't a fan of touch screens.

    This does look like a good phone and I can't wait to play around with it! One of the comments indicates that HTC will release an update to Android v2 first part of 2010. I wonder what the hold up is?
