HTC Droid Eris (Hero) for $99
The HTC Droid Eris (Hero) will be the most affordable Google Android-powered smartphone this fall. You'll get this new smartphone for $99.
Why am I calling the Eris a Hero? Well, according to several rumors, the Eris will be the CDMA version of the Hero, which is a GSM smartphone. When HTC makes the same phone for CDMA and GSM networks, they often rename them even though most of the hardware specs are virtually the same. You may find some subtle nuances, such as the location of a headphone jack, the location of the memory card slot, some internal RAM, etc.
