Just when Motorola delivers a break through product, up pops HTC rearing their not so ugly head. Set to launch on the same day as the DROID is the ‘DROID’ Eris, which is essentially a rebranded Hero handset. The ‘DROID’ Eris name possibly has something to do with some sort of weird Verizon branding, but if I were Motorola I’d be up in arms.
Specs for the handset include a 3.2-inch touchscreen, WiFi, virtual QWERTY keyboard, 5 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headphone jack and all that HTC jazz we’ve come to expect.
The ‘DROID’ Eris will set you back $199 after a $100 mail-in-rebate and 2-year contract signing.
