I have a feeling there are about to be a LOT of new Android owners in coming months. In years past, if you wanted a smartphone you would need to be willing to shell out a handsome amount of money. That has changed drastically in the past 12 months and the latest development is proof positive: you can now get the HTC Droid Eris for FREE in our Phandroid Phone Store!
Only new Verizon customers can take advantage of the offer but get this – the activation fee is also waived!
I’m really excited to see this happening because it illustrates a couple things:
- Android DOES help reduce the cost of smartphones because the OS is FREE for manufacturers/carriers and the savings are passed along to people like you and me. You know… people who want awesome phones without paying ridiculous prices.
- If someone was PLANNING on getting a crappy phone but see that an awesome Android Phone is free, they might get the Android Phone because heck – there is nothing to lose! More people with better phones makes the world go round.
- Cheap/FREE Android Phones = more Android users = more applications/games being downloaded = more attention for the platform by developers = more and better apps/games
If you’re looking for advice, tips, tricks, suggestions, etc…. I’m sure you probably already know that the #1 place to get Eris related information is from the always awesome HTC Droid Eris Forum on AndroidForums.com!
