Droid X gets shown off alongside iPhone, EVO 4G and Droid Eris

droid-x-comparison

There’s no denying that the Droid X floodgates are wide open now. Over at the Android Forums some new photos of the device have emerged by way of user matrix2004. Far more fascinating than the typical leaked images, what makes these ones special is that the show off the X next to EVO 4G, iPhone 3G and Droid Eris giving us a good idea of its size. No surprises here, but it’s absolutely massive. Other things of note in the image are some of the custom widgets that come along with “Shadow BLUR“, the (thankfully) tasteful update to MOTOBLUR. Hit the jump to check out the X next to the Droid Eris.

Thanks, Nick!

DROID ERIS update begins rolling out

DROID ERIS update begins rolling out

HTC-Droid-Eris-3

Just a quick little note to all of our friends with a Verizon HTC DROID ERIS, as the Android 2.1 OTA software update has begun. Being a gradual rollout, only about 1,000 people will get an on-device notification prompting them to begin the update before the night’s end. If you’re not fortunate enough to be one of those people, 9,000 more users will get the nod tomorrow. All told, Verizon is planning to push the update to all of the DROID ERIS users by the 16th of May. As always, a full changelog is available after the jump. More →

HTC DROID ERIS and BlackBerry Tour 9630 set for end-of-life with Verizon

bb-9630-EOL

With Verizon soon to be carrying some hot new smartphones from HTC and RIM, the carrier has decided it no longer has a need for the HTC DROID ERIS and BlackBerry Tour 9630. In an internal memo sent out during the week, Verizon informed employees that the DROID ERIS will reach end-of-life at the end of May while the Tuh-Tuh-Tuh Tour (it’s been a long time, eh?) will hit the same brick wall in June. They’ll be around only as long as their stock holds up, so in case you’re dying to have either for your collection or just because you don’t share our compulsive need for the latest and greatest, we’re sure you’ll be able to finagle yourself one hell of a deal.

Verizon Android devices get FiOS Mobile

Verizon couch potatoes throw your hands up! If you have a DROID or Eris on Verizon, and you’re a FiOS customer, you can get FiOS Mobile on your phone now. You can check TV listings, adjust parental controls, set your DVR and even check out Videos On Demand with the new mobile application. Verizon also included a nifty little storage space indicator to let you know when it’s time to delete those episodes of Jersey Shore that you’ve already seen a dozen times. Let us know how it works out for you, will you? More →

You already know we smashed this one, but in case you don’t…  Release date? Check. Spy shots? Yes please. Unboxing? Sure. Press release? Well, we figure we would let Verizon handle that one. Today, HTC and Verizon officially announced the November 6th launch of the DROID Eris on the “there’s a map for that” network. This handset has all the goodies: Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5 megapixel camera, 3.2″ touch screen display, and HTC’s Sense UI. The price tag is set at $99 on contract after a $100 mail-in rebate. We’ve given this puppy enough attention, but you can hit the press release for all the minutia. More →

Verizon Wireless stores opening at 6AM on November 6th?

You know what November 6th is, right? It’s DROID day baby. And we don’t just mean the Motorola DROID. Alongside Schaumburg’s finest, HTC’s Droid Eris will go on sale as well and what better way to maximize sales than to have stores open early? Super early if one of our connects is to be believed: 6AM sharp.

Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Eris launching November 6th on Verizon

verizon-droid-eris

One of our connects hit us up and informed us that the much-awaited Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Eris will be launching on the same day of November 6th. We previously heard from another source that Droid Eris would launch on the 6th, so we’re feeling pretty confident that you’ll be able to mosey on down to your local Verizon Wireless shop and pick one up for yourself come next Friday. Is this confirmed? No, but this is the closest we’re going to get besides an official announcement.
