I’m still on the train, but here, at least, are a few live shots of the DROID ERIS that I shot while at the Verizon event.  As I mentioned in the prior post, I plan on uploading some video action today – once I get a few moments to catch my breath (and some real bandwidth, for that matter). For now, check out the pics.  As always, if you have any questions – ask them in the comments and I will try to get you answers. Photo gallery after the jump. Update: Video added after the jump, too.

A few minutes ago the release of the DROID ERIS for Verizon Wireless became official.  I’m on a train heading to NYC right now to get some hands-on time with the device at a Verizon press event.  I’ll post photos and maybe video later, but for now, this is what we know. The ERIS appears to be very much like the HTC Hero for Sprint, but will be available for a relatively low up-front cost: $99.99 on contract.  The device features the same Sense user interface that we find on the Hero, which is a pleasant surprise.  The base specs…

I just got an email from my contact at General Mobile, and he wanted to give me some information on his company’s next Android smartphone.  While he didn’t reveal a name to me just yet, I did get a look at a decent spec sheet.

OK, Russell just finished up his review of the HTC Tattoo, the low-cost HTC Sense-toting smartphone with a QVGA resolution resistive touchscreen display.  I’ve still got to proof and edit the copy, but I can at least offer you the videos right now.  Part 1 is below, part 2 is available after the jump.

It seems that Acer are putting the launch date of the A1 Liquid device back a few days and instead of a November launch, we can now expect the device to land during December, still in time for the holidays. This Android 1.6 touch-screen phone is allegedly suitable for an upgrade to Android 2.0 over the air, when it becomes available. The A1 will be Acer’s first Android based mobile phone offering and will ship in White, Black and Red. The 3.5 inch screen offers WVGA (800 X 480 pixels) along with multitouch support. If you are unaware of the…

It’s been a busy morning, indeed.  Amid all of this Motorola MILESTONE news, I managed to get the full review of the Motorola DROID for Verizon posted on MobileBurn.com. I came away being much more impressed with it than my initial impressions might have suggested.  Sure, there are some ergonomic issues that bug me, and I stumbled upon a few minor bugs, but overall I was really loving the device. I’m going to keep it around for a bit, too – just because I can.  It’s a fun device, and the new Google Maps Navigation is a great tool for…

Sprint’s Samsung Moment Android smartphone is now available for purchase for $179.99.  If you head on out and buy one of these AMOLED-equipped smartphones, leave a comment at the end of this post and let us know what you think. By the way, you can read my full review of the Samsung Moment at MobileBurn.com – 2 HD videos and plenty of photos  included.

Motorola has launched a website that details all of the goodies found in the new GSM/UMTS version of the DROID that will be known as the MILESTONE. From what I can gather, it appears to be basically the same device with new network support and some relatively minor software changes.  I gather from what the spec sheet says that this phone will not offer Google Maps Navigation, since MOTONAV is included on the phone.  It does supposedly support multitouch zoom control in the browser, though, so that’s certainly going to appeal to a lot of people. BTW, I posted the…

OK guys, I’m starting to put pen to paper (or finger to key) with the DROID review, so if you have any specific questions or things you want me to consider for the review, leave a comment.  I’ll try to answer all the questions that come in within the next week or two, and it might help me catch a few things I would have otherwise missed for the review. So ask away! UPDATE: By request, a gallery comparing the size of the DROID with a Motorola RAZR V3 after the jump. UPDATE2: The Motorola DROID review has been posted…
