Daniel Inoshita, a friend and co-worker, bought an HTC Droid Eris from Verizon. I sat down a few minutes with him to get his initial impressions after having the phone for just a few hours.
I apologize for the low sound volume during the initial minute of the conversation. I used a Touch Pro2 to record the video and forgot how unidirectional its microphone is (usually a very good thing). I used volume leveling to try to even out the volume post-hoc as well as possible. One important item that may be difficult to hear is Daniel’s explanation of the Droid Eris’ price. It is $199 – $100 rebate – another $50 for current Verizon Wireless customers past their previous two-year contract point.
