If you’ve had your eye on the Android-powered HTC Hero and its customized Sense UI, but just couldn’t bear to leave Verizon’s warm embrace for Sprint’s network, you’re in luck! Verizon went official this morning with the Hero-esque HTC Droid Eris. The Eris is a lot like the Hero, just for the Verizon Wireless network. And, at just $99, the Droid Eris is the more affordable alternative to both the upcoming Motorola Droid and the Sprint HTC Hero. The Eris even sports the same Sense UI that we’ve come to love on the HTC Hero.
Here’s a quick spec-sheet rundown on the HTC Droid Eris:
- 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen (320×480)
- 5-megapixel camera (with autofocus)
- Android 1.5 OS
- 3G data
- 3.5mm headphone jack
