Verizon's much-anticipated Droid smartphone came into the spotlight this week, but it seems this will be only the first in a series of Android-based devices, with the second model -- named the Droid Eris -- expected early next month. The initial model in this series will be dubbed the "Droid by Motorola", while the Droid Eris will supposedly be made by HTC. HTC DesireThis device was briefly shown off by Verizon and Google at an event early this month (see image at left), revealing that it will be a tablet-shaped model with a strong resemblance to the HTC Hero.

It will allegedly have an 3.2-inch HVGA screen, Wi-Fi, 5-MPx camera, and a GPS receiver, but no hardware keyboard. This model has the code-name HTC Desire, and it was under that designation that it received FCC approval late last month. It will run Google's Android OS, but the standard user interface will be replaced with HTC Sense. However, the Google applications will still be included, and users of this smartphone will have access to the 10,000+ apps currently on the Android Market, the on-device software store.

Release Date & Price
The HTC Droid Eris will reportedly launch on November 6, which will put its debut close to the release of the Motorola Droid. It's not known what Verizon will charge for this model.

Two More Android Models
Verizon's Droid series will apparently include at least three models: the Motorola Droid, the HTC Droid Eris, and a third model currently known only by its code-name, the Motorola Calgary.

Like the original Droid, this will reportedly be a slider, with a landscape-oriented QWERTY keyboard. It will apparently have a smaller, lower-resolution screen than the Droid. While the Droid is expected to be a high-end model, the Calgary will be more mid-range, or possibly even entry level.

I think overall the size + look of the phone is pretty good. If its cheap enough and has the power of android, it could be a successful phone.

This was a pretty hysterical necropost. Funny to look back on a smartphone where the major feature was "Wifi". Not to mention a 3.2" screen.

We only had 10,000 + apps back then. How did we ever live? I can't believe I'm still alive

I do that now but instead of Skype I use Google voice and call out using the app groove ip. I use my nexus as my home phone over wifi.
