Verizon's entry Android phone already on sale
Walmart helped spur Black Friday sales today by selling the HTC Droid Eris on discount. The Android smartphone has dropped from its original $100 to $30 on the same two-year contract as at Verizon. It doesn't require a rebate but is currently backordered.
The Eris is a cosmetic restyling of the Hero and shares its 5-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. Verizon's model comes in matte black and has an 8GB microSDHC card preloaded, though unlike the Motorola Droid on the same network it has only Android 1.5 instead of 2.0. [via Engadget]
