Droid Eris Not To Get Froyo Update

Verizon has decided that the HTC Droid Eris won’t be getting the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update. A Verizon spokesperson told Computerworld that Verizon has canceled all its plan of bringing Android 2.2 to the handset.htc-droid-eris According to the spokesperson, the reason for this is that Verizon have other options in Android devices, so this is part of the normal evolution of our portfolio.”

This news will surely be heart-breaking for all the Droid Eris customers out there. The Eris never managed to grab the headlines like the other top-dogs Android handsets in the Verizon line-up. Droid Eris owners who want to experience Android 2.2 need to either wait for some modder over at XDA-Developers to port it to their device or purchase a new handset pre-loaded with Android 2.2.

While Eris owners would want the former, Verizon definitely wants the latter to happen!
