HTC Droid Eris Being Retired by Verizon?
The HTC Droid Eris smartphone, it’s not that old is it? Surely the device hasn’t been around so long it has come to the end of its usefulness, but apparently the Big Red is not of the same opinion even though the HTC Droid Eris has recently received an upgrade to Android 2.1.
The word according to Chris Ziegler over at Engadget is that Verizon Wireless seems to be retiring the HTC Droid Eris and will no longer be available via their online store, so one could presume the Big Red won’t be replenishing any stock.
No doubt HTC Droid Eris inventory will dwindle from Verizon shelves even though the device may have done well as a $50+ on contract device, but the reason could be that Verizon is looking to keep the Android platform as their high end offering for now.
And well the HTC Droid Eris probably won’t be missed too much considering the Big Red has a couple of new Droid devices lined up such as the Motorola Droid 2 and Motorola Droid X.
