HTC Droid Eris: Verizon OTA Update Release Date Confirmed

We have some good news for those of you with an HTC Droid Eris handset, as some leaked internal documents have revealed that the device is in line for an OTA update from Verizon soon.

As reported from Phandroid, the information on the update has come to us courtesy of Droid-Life, who seem to be becoming quite infamous for their Droid leaks now.

As for the update, this isn’t an update to Android 2.2 Froyo as most of you have been praying for, but it is a pretty significant OTA update that will add some more life to your aging handset.

New features include improved audio, enhanced speed dial, Jabra Bluetooth headset support, more Exchange options and Gmail contact syncing.

This update is scheduled to land on July 16th – this Friday. Let us know your thoughts on this, more information over at Phandroid.

    I received the update yesterday also, i didnt get a choice to do it or not and every since i updated i get an htc error message on my phone all the time, i can be in random programs and get the error message???? anyone else had this issue. It says it has to force close but when i hit ok the message goes away but nothing closes.. idk

  • I updated mine and had no issues. This update is being leaked across the Web, however most sites offer no instructions for users on installation procedures. If you’d rather install the update yourself, rather than waiting for the OTA, you can download the update file and receive simple installation instructions here:

    Just got this update today, July 18. If you have the option to update yours, don't do it. My Home pages are all now all blank–no clock, no shortcuts, no weather, nothing, nada, zip. It's all gone. Not sure if anything else is fubar.
