The Android 2.1 update is talked about a lot these days. While in previous articles we talked about if, how and when the Android 2.1 update will come for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and the HTC Hero, now its time to talk a little about the Android 2.1 update for the Verizon HTC Droid Eris, tagged with a “coming soon” release date on a Verizon Wireless support page.
There are lots of pessimistic comments related to the DROID Eris updating to Android 2.1, and I can’t help but agree, knowing that HTC is also having problems in releasing the Android 2.1 update for the HTC Hero. Other suggest that HTC is delaying this update on purpose, in an effort to better promote the Android 2.1 smartphones they already have (and those that will soon be released, such as the HTC Evo 4G), but maybe that’s just mean talk.
The only thing the DROID Eris can do now is sit in its dark corner and wait jealously for the Android 2.1 update that the Google Nexus One is using.
