Verizon Wireless has been rolling out their latest 4G LTE networks faster than most of us imagined they would. Basically their 4G offering is putting the rest to shame, while AT&T is barely even getting started. We last heard of around 25 new cities getting updated back in July and now only a few weeks later they are adding 15 more cities to the 4G spectrum while upgrading and expanding the reach in many others.
Verizon and HTC are encouraging Droid Eris customers to download and install the latest firmware update: ROM: 2.41.605.6/Radio: 2.42.01.04.27. The new update is designed to improve wireless connectivity and expand media sharing and social networking features. Included in the update is improved Bluetooth performance with Mercedes-Benz E350 automobiles, a streamlined Twitter authentication login, an easier to read received signal strength indicator display, and even Visual Voice Mail. In addition, Calendars can now be synced via Microsoft Exchange. Users can also send and receive videos, pictures and even audio messages with or without text and over multiple networks.

be present in the next maintenance release.
