Droid Eris 2.1 Release Date

Feb 18th, 20101 Comment

Just like most Droid Eris owners, I have been patiently waiting for the 2.x update to be released.  There are a number of reports popping up around the web stating that users are receiving the update and its causing a lot of issues.  I emailed HTC support requesting more information on the update, and this was their response (see below).

New Response From [ Cheryl (North America Support (Tech)) ]Hello Eugene,

Thank you for contacting HTC Technical Support via email about the Verizon Droid Eris and the 2.1 software update for the device.

I can understand how important it is to keep the devices up to date. It was official announced by HTC on our Twitter page that a software update for Android 2.1 will be released in the first six-months of 2010 for the Droid Eris as well as other HTC Android devices. Unfortunately, we in the tech support department do not have any specific date so to keep up with updates I would suggest following HTC on our Twitter page.

HTC also has other pages you can visit they are https://secure.htc.com/us/community/, http://www.youtube.com/HTC, http://twitter.com/htc, www.facebook.com/HTC, www.android.com, http://androidcommunity.com/forums/, or www.htcwiki.com for self-help, tips & tricks and you can also take a survey at http://survey.htc.com/worldwide/.

Sincerely,

Kay
HTC Technical Support

So for all those who are patiently waiting, the update may be released as late as June 2010 (bummer).
