We briefly talked about the Verizon-bound HTC Droid Eris in a previous post. Back then, we had very little info and not even a pic to work on, but now, we’ve got a handful of new information pertaining to this upcoming HTC Android phone including this press photo of it.

HTC Droid Eris

Unlike the recently announced Motorola Droid, the HTC Droid Eris will only come with a Qualcomm 528MHz processor and Android 1.5. On the upside, however, it will still feature a 5-megapixel autofocus camera, WiFi, and will ship with their sleek new HTC Sense UI. To further sweeten the deal, it will apparently retail a $100 less than the going rate for the Droid at just $99 when Verizon debuts it on November 6th. That’s actually not so bad especially for a sub-$100 phone.

That's all we have for now, but rest assure, we’ll report more on the Droid Eris once it’s officially announced or additional info becomes available, whichever comes first.
