There were a few complaints and sighs that the HTC Droid Eris would only have a 528 MHz processor – and I dismissed that disappointment as misplaced. The Droid Eris (Desire) is essentially the HTC Hero and its been incredibly successful to date and will continue to sell well. I’m not sure why people who originally enjoyed the Hero are hating on the Droid Eris only a few months later?
Maybe this will help. The HTC Droid Eris will cost only $99 if the price point a GDGT admin suggests is on point. That would deeply undercut the cost of the very capable Sprint HTC Hero. We initially passed along info that the Eris would launch November 10th so lets see if that still holds up. We’ve also heard November 6th.
