Yes, yet another HTC DROID ERIS post.  I did a much better quality video this afternoon after I got back from New York and thought I had best post it here for you folks.

So, here it is. An unboxing... and a basic, fresh-out-of-the-box feature tour.

And in case I forget, I’m picking up a Samsung Behold II next Thursday (the 12th), so you can expect some solid coverage of that device at that ti...

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 co...

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.

On its Twitter account, HTC yesterday said that an Android 2.0 update was forthcoming for the HTC Hero. The tweet in question didn’t specify if the update would be available for both the EU version... and the Sprint CDMA version, though.

The rumors are true! Hero will be getting an Eclair update. We ask for your patience as we update Sense for the fancy new Android OS

Finally, HTC have made the kernel to the beloved HTC Hero available to developers to have their way with. Until now, one of the biggest issues for those wanting to develop for the HTC Hero was the fact... that the ROM was not publically available. Now these wrongs have been made right and for those that are interested, the HTC Hero kernel can be obtained from HTC’s development center.

Not to quas...

Europe may have already got over the buzz about the HTC Hero and have their eyes set on newer toys, but the USA is just receiving this little wonder, with Sprint. It is now officially available on their... website and has a Flash page to prove it.

Some of the highlights that Sprint have opted to market include the 5.0MP camera, the Android Market and the home screen widgets. This is pretty much what...

T-Mobile USA is soon going to roll out a re-styled and slightly upgraded myTouch 3G according to a press release.  The new T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition will sport a wood grain guitar... finish and will be equipped with a real 3.5mm headphone jack, something the original myTouch 3G is missing.

No word yet on pricing or an availability date, but it should be ready for the holid...

A Gizmodo tipster has provided an (unofficial) document that allegedly lists 12 new upcoming phones from Verizon. This document appears to have been scanned in, but it is slightly unclear as to why.... The document is certainly not an official Verizon product listing (unlike before), made evident from a mixture of the use of the first person, and terminology such as ‘about 12 new phones’. Why th...

Google CEO Eric Schmidt can be seen in an official press photo with Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam holding what appears to be a Verizon branded version of the HTC Hero, a device that is currently being offered... by Sprint.

Verizon isn’t talking about the device or the photo, but it seems pretty obvious what’s going on behind the scenes.  Verizon customers will eventually be getting the same Hero...

It seems that those crazy folks at Cellular South are going to upstage Sprint by offering the same HTC Hero, a fantastic device, for a mere $99.99 with contract.  It has also opened up pre-sales for... the Hero.

The device is offered on a $79.99 unlimited data, voice, and texting plan.  And if you get one of these smartphone plans, you can get a second unlimited smartphone plan for only $39.9...
