HTC Droid Eris: No Android 2.2 Froyo Update on Verizon – Confirmed

By Alan Ng - Sep 13, 2010

We have some disappointing news for HTC Droid Eris owners now, as it has been confirmed by Verizon that the handset will not be receiving an update to Android 2.2 Froyo. How do you feel about this?

As reported from ComputerWorld, the Droid Eris has always been considered to be the least glamorous handsets out of the Droid lineup, with Verizon confirming that they are unwilling to support the device further with the likes of the Droid 2, Droid X and Droid Incredible to look after.

Here is a statement issued to ComputerWorld from Verizon: “We will not be updating the Eris to 2.2 because our device portfolio evolves and changes constantly.”

For those of you who do still have a Droid Eris, perhaps it is now time to start thinking about getting an upgrade on Verizon – there are plenty of alternatives available.

Are you upset about this, or did you expect it? Full story over at Computer World.
