HTC Droid Eris to receive newer Android version update and Google Navigation

Droid Eris
According to HTC the Verizon Droid Eris is going to updated to a newer version of Android and Google Navigation early next year. It remains to be seen if this is going to be Android 2.0 or something else. Now that Google Navigation is out on Android 1.6 it is possible that the Droid Eris will only get a newer 1.6 build. But Android 2.0 or higher is still a possibility now that we know that Android 2.1 ROMs are already out in the wild for the HTC Hero.

Droid Eris is getting an update to a newer version of Android early next year. Google Navigation support is coming your way ;)

I finally managed to get my hands on an HTC HD2, so if you have any questions or suggestion for my upcoming review (which should be up next week), don’t hesitate to hit me up on twitter or post in the comments. The review is going to be really detailed so give me a few days before I finsh it. My first impression so far is that the device is blazing fast! Lots of good stuff in there and some bad points too (Opera Mobile still isn’t as good as Safari Mobile, HTML email rendering still sucks..)

Motorola Shole Tablet live pictures


Thanks to Chinese website Androidin.net we now have full blown pictures of the Motorola Sholes Tablet we have seen two days ago. Contrary to what we thought the device only sports a 5Mpix camre (8Mpix was the rumor). The design doesn’t really look atractive (thankfully the specs are great).
