    The Eris is being discontinued, the last I heard. I wouldn't get an Eris if I were you.

    I know, I'm saying Motorola sucks, and the phone I have now is a piece of junk, and the droid looks ugly as hell

    You can either wait for a Droid Incredible, or get a Droid X on July 15th.
    Of course if you don't mind going online, you can go to Wirefly, says it will be 1-2 weeks, as opposed to a month.

    Don't buy the Eris. It was a great little phone when it was released, but even then, it was already considered to have outdated hardware. Wait for the Incredible to come back in stock if you insist on going with HTC.

    Are you like 12 or something? Anyone who would pick an Eris over the Droid x must not be thinking straight. And I can assure you that any piece of hardware from Motorola is a lot nicer and better made then anything HTC could make

    As a corporate sales rep, I'd say don't settle for the Eris...you'd pretty much be shooting yourself in the foot. As for as Motorola goes, they DID fall off for a few years but, they have totally and completely redeemed themselves with the release of the Droid..and it's only going to get better! If you've made your mind up to leave the Droid on the shelf, I'd personally wait for the Incredible.
    P.S. - The Eris is ALREADY discontinued, and I'm glad! Haha!

    If the Droid looked better I'd get it, I guess I'll wait. My friend is trying to convince me to get the new BB.

    You do realize the droid was never made to look "pretty". I think you might be better off with an iPhone. Princess.

    I was in the same boat...kinda...when I got my Droid too. After learning the phone (and especially rooting it), I only saw the screen and performance end and didn't pay anymore attention to anything else. Cases could also be another alternative to "pretty" up the phone too. Just don't want to see you sacrifice quality and performance for looks, that's all.

    If you're willing to hold out and wait, you will
    not be disappointed with the Incredible.
    If not, don't get the original MotoDroid. Definitely get one of the new
    phones that are coming out.

    wait for the incredible.

    i wouldn't recommend the droid either at this point, droid 2 is right around the corner and is both better looking and better performing.

    keep hearing conflicting things about the droid x. i'd suggest a wait and see approach with that phone. of course if it comes out and is the best thing since boobs then you jump on it!
