Got My Wife an Eris Over the Weekend
Went by my usual Verizon company store (I've got a corporate account so need to use VZ corporate physical location) over the weekend and got my wife an Eris. This is her first smart phone. I spent about six hours with it Saturday evening getting it set up for her and generally playing around with the phone.
It's a cool phone--nice size, solid, easy to navigate, good typing. I've never used an iPhone (altho our daughter-in-law has a 3GS), so cannot compare to the Apple unit.
My wife likes the Eris a lot.
For me and what I use my phone for, Blackberry is much better option. I'm liking the S2, but liked the Tour, as well.
And, FWIW, I was very underwhelmed by the Moto Droid, aside from the screen which was lovely.
