    Cool Eris

    With all these android phones coming out I don't know why I bought my bb tour with an outdated OS in July!? If only I had some more patience!! What are your thoughts on BB vs. Android os?

    Dont want to take credit for this..but I forgot which member here hooked me up...Its in the "custom sound' thread that I started....Checkout Ring Extender(if available as an app for Eris). It works great w/Droid. An able to select my own tone for Sms amd email...

    There really is not comparison IMO Android blows BB out of water. That being said if I was still working at my old company I would have stuck with BlackBerry just for the instant email push for all email. That is the only downfall (right now) that I can find running the Eris.

    The OS itself is like night and day compared to BB, to me it is more user friendly and easier to navigate.

    I have a question for all android users.. do you have more than your gmail account on there.. and if so how is the battery life with the "pull" email?

    I'm right there with you Bryan. I think the idea behind their OS is genius cause not everyone cares for the push email. A lot of people get mesmerized by the explosive OS and the flashy UI and forget about push email. Soon enough google will have their own encrypted network and its scary to say this but I think if blackberry doesn't make major changes to their OS google will take over the number 1 spot.

    I convinced my sister to buy the droid and taught her how to use it but I haven't been able to experience the sense ui on the Eris. How is the keyboard experience on the Eris in comparison to the Droid?

    I have an easier time typing on the Eris than I did with the Droid (but I have also had the Eris longer and only tried the Droid in the store). But it is smooth. My only issue with it is the space bar is to far over to the left on the screen so I hit the period button a lot at: but I am getting better.
