BGR is reporting the Eris is set to get an OS upgrade in Q1 of 2010. Unsure of many details however. They say, and I quote:

“We’ve received word that the HTC DROID Eris on Verizon Wireless will definitely be getting an OS upgrade sometime in Q1. We haven’t been told exactly what OS version it will be (Android 1.6, 2.0, 2.1), just that Google Maps Navigation will be included.”

So if you’re sitting on the fence debating if you want to go grab your free Eris:


…or not – well. Maybe this will help.

Update: InformationWeek is pretty confident the update will be 2.x.

“When asked to clarify exactly which version of Android the Droid Eris will get, Raney explained that, based on the timing, the Droid Eris will be updated to either Android 2.0 or 2.1. We know that Android 2.0 brings some serious platform improvements to Android, but right now we know little about Android 2.1.

Either way, Eris users can be confident that their devices will become uber-Android phones in the not-too-distant future. The combination of Sense UI and Android 2.0 will make for a highly capable device.”
