Android 2.1 may be the last official update to the Eris from Verizon. They have decided to end support of the Eris, it was the launch partner of the original Droid. It’s still possible that HTC may choose to still support the handset but that is highly unlikely. If you want 2.2 on Eris you might want to root it or be satisfied with 2.1.
The lack of support from everyone involved with this phone has been the focal point of many people losing faith in Samsung. It’ll probable never see Android 2.0+ even though there is a petition going around to make this happen. Regardless, we are hearing word that the OTA to 1.6 has started to arrive on a few Behold ll’s.
Android 1.6 offers a whole world of possibilities for the Behold ll. along with this update to 1.6, Samsung is including Google Voice, Google Maps with navigation as well as the Swype keyboard. There are other various bug fixes thrown in also. Even with these extra goodies being tossed in, I still don’t see many users being happy about this whole situation.
Ready to start the speculation train? We just told you a bit ago that the @DroidLanding Twitter account is, indeed, real, and that it's spouting off rumors from this point on to let people get in on the Droid X action before anyone else. Coincidentally enough, one of the first tweets that account actually posted said that the Droid X has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Interesting, yes?
If the upcoming keyboard-less Motorola Droid X isn’t your cup of tea, Verizon has you covered with the next incarnation of the Droid. This time around the Droid 2 was spotted at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA). Gizmodo had a spy planted at the event and he was willing to give us all his first impressions of the device.
We're only in the middle of June, and while we're all still riding the coat-tails of the EVO 4G's launch, most of us are already looking forward to what's coming next. For some on the Verizon network, that means the Droid X (formerly known as the Droid Xtreme and Droid Shadow), or the Droid 2. Rumors have it that they could be launched, both of them, in July, while a fresh rumor suggests that the Droid X will be launching in July, while the Droid 2 would see official release in August. Either way, we're still aching for more details, and while these slides outlining the commercials showcasing the devices share some insight, they aren't as in-depth as we'd like.
