Droid Eris (by HTC) will not be getting the latest version of the Android OS- Froyo.
It was announces this Tuesday by Verizon that the company will not upgrade the device leaving the disappointed customers with two choices:
- Pay for an upgrade to a newer device.
- Stay with the Eris and root it.
My personal advice; go and root it. There are so many great stuff that could be found online, you can't miss it.
