As usual, Droid Life has come through with some Mr. Blurrycam photos. This time, they’re from Verizon and show that the Droid Eris will be receiving a software update on July 17th at midnight (ok – techincally, it’s July 16th at 11:59 PM – but for all intents and purposes, that’s the 17th). The update isn’t Android 2.2, but that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise given that the phone has been discontinued. Still, when the 2.1 update rolled out to users, it brought a number of issues – most significantly:

  • Numerous syncing issues
  • Weather widget instability
  • Bluetooth compatability problems


Thankfully, the update looks to fix all that, as well as improve various other aspects of the phone. That said, i wouldn’t expect to see too many more updates roll out for the Eris, so enjoy it while it lasts, users.
