Verizon launches second Android phone Following the gigantic hype of the Motorola DROID Android phone, Verizon has launched their second Android device, to much less fanfare.
The phone, the HTC Droid Eris, is very significant to its manufacturer. The company is a big name in smartphone manufacturing but brand recognition is nowhere near the same stratosphere occupied by Apple, RIM and Motorola.

The Eris will sell for $100 USD with contract, half the price of the DROID, but with an inferior feature set.

The phone features a 5MP camera, 8GB microSD card, and all standard Android 1.6 features.

"We win on design, we win on pricing, and our user experience is already popular," added Jason MacKenzie, HTC's North America unit vice president.
