Seemingly forgotten in the shadow of the Motorola DROID, the DROID Eris may finally see an update to Android 2.1. The support page for the DROID Eris has been updated and now contains information about a new version of Android that is slated to hit the aging handset. Though the Android version included in the update was not specified, the changelog clearly points to it being the much anticipated Android 2.1. No date for roll out was listed but internal rumblings suggest that it may hit before the month of May is over, just in time for the ERIS to hit the EOL list.

Thanks to all who sent this in!
