    Yeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!:supergrin::supergrin::supergrin:

    Any awesome apps out there? I've got the obvious ones like pandora, all the gun ones from scheff's blend (what no glocks?) a bunch of soundboards, "where?" the barcode scanner and a couple OK games. Any others I should get?

    no the Droid is like the iphone but better cuz its faster, cheaper (free) and none of the apps cost money. That and its on Verizon which works 100% around here, unlike AT&T

    Drois Eris, is one of 2 phones on Verizon that run the Android OS from Google, which is based on Linux. It has an "app store" similar to iPhone, yet the apps are free (most or many or all?)

    Droid Eris is the "economy" model, and the Droid is the "fancy" model, in Verizon's current lineup. Droid Eris is made by HTC, who makes many many other smartphones, and Droid is made by Motorola, who also makes other smartphones and regular phones, as well as everything else they make.

    This video has a nice little quick comparison of the Droid Eris, and the Droid.

    This site does a comparo with Droid, Droid Eris, and comments interspersed about iPhone.

    I have plans to get an Android phone through Verizon in the near future, probably the Droid, or maybe the Google Nexus One when it comes to Verizon (they say Spring 2010).

    ETA: to OP: Have you had other smartphones before you got the Droid Eris (like iPhone, or Crackberry), or is this your first one? How do you like it so far, the size, the feel of the construction, etc?

    FWIW, the Android platform is SUPERIOUR to the older Palm stuff (minus the Pre).

    I love my Moto Droid! It rocks!!!

    LOL no the closest thing I had to a smartphone before this one was a Sanyo M1. The HTC replaced a well-beaten Motorola W755. It's tiny, but not so tiny I'd drop it or lose it. About the same size as an iPhone. I've messed with my buddy's iphone and its about the same, but slower. I would've gotten the Moto droid but my thumbs are too big!! I have NO problem typing on the HTC when i rotate it so its the wide way.
