    Has anyone bought this phone yet? I'd love to hear some thoughts. Especially if you compare it to the Droid.

    I played with them active and side by side today.. The moto has flash, is faster, comes preloaded with 2.0. the Eris is beautiful in design but slow.. no faster than a storm IMHO, no flash on camera.. Neither model can tether. Just an FYI the 2.0 or 'eclair' software will not be available on this device til late 2010

    That is incorrect from what I have read so far. If you root the phone (jailbrake) you can tether. just an FYI

    Yeah, too bad about the (comparitively) crappy lower-res/lower bit-depth screen on the HTC. Being a heavy web user, the Moto wins by default just by screen alone.
