Verizon FTW: Droid Eris 2.1 Update ‘Coming Soon’

Verizon FTW: Droid Eris 2.1 Update ‘Coming Soon’

I guess Sprint was feeling a bit lonely: Verizon has recently revealed on their official support site for the Droid Eris that users can expect an update to 2.1 ‘soon’. Unfortunately, they don’t offer a more specific time table, but they do provide documents both detailing the benefits of upgrading as well as instructions on how to do so, which is definitely reassuring.

Reading through the documents provided, it looks like Verizon is going to deliver the update over-the-air, as well as require the user to wipe the device.

As we reported yesterday, Sprint has once again pushed back the scheduled Android 2.1 update for the HTC Hero to an unknown future date, destroying expectations of the May 7th release.

Another official confirmation of this was given today in a Sprint statement by another Sprint admin, which notified customers that the delay also affects the Samsung Moment. The official statement on the Sprint forums said

HTC EVO 4G Flyer Scans From The Upcoming 4 Week RadioShack Advertising Campaign

HTC EVO 4G Flyer Scans From The Upcoming 4 Week RadioShack Advertising Campaign

The HTC EVO 4G is coming in June, and we all can't wait for it to arrive here. That's why any time a bit of new information about the phone surfaces on the web, we sheeply run over to take a look, our tongues out.

This time, AndroidCentral's sister site PreCentral, or rather one of its users - bnceo got some nice scans of the 4 week advertising campaign RadioShack, now The Shack, is planning to run with for the month before EVO 4G is released.

Reminder: Sprint Offers A $100 Credit For Customers Porting Their Numbers From Other Carriers

Reminder: Sprint Offers A $100 Credit For Customers Porting Their Numbers From Other Carriers

Have you been dreaming of picking up an HTC EVO 4G the day it comes out sometime in June (I have) but are currently using another carrier, and maybe even stuck in a contract with them?

Or may you've wanted to switch to Sprint because of their amazing Anymobile Anytime plans that offer unlimited minutes to any carrier's mobile numbers - not just Sprint (yeah, my last bill was 6 anytime minutes)?

No Multitouch For XPERIA X10 Mini And Mini Pro Either - Is Sony Ericsson Ever Going To Listen To What Its Customers Want?

No Multitouch For XPERIA X10 Mini And Mini Pro Either - Is Sony Ericsson Ever Going To Listen To What Its Customers Want?

You know the drama with the XPERIA X10 multitouch support? The one where it was supposedly possible, then not, then possible again, then refuted for good?

X10 Mini/Mini Pro Multitouch

Well, the recently announced little brothers of the X10 - the Mini and the Mini Pro, will not be getting multitouch either, as confirmed by the official Sony Ericsson blog.

Single handed operation seems to be the theme throughout their whole post, insisting that even though the users clearly want multitouch, the devices are better without it (who are the users to dictate what's better, eh?):

No May 7th Android 2.1 Update For Sprint HTC Hero - And Yet Again We Are Sad Pandas

No May 7th Android 2.1 Update For Sprint HTC Hero - And Yet Again We Are Sad Pandas

The HTC Hero Android 2.1 update (which we previewed in full here) drama can now probably get its own reality show - every week we get a leak or a "source" that promises the update "for sure this time" and then the week goes by - and nothing happens.

The recent May 7th rumor was getting so old and repetitive, we didn't even consider it report-worthy, and now a Sprint community employee has indicated it indeed had no merit.

Motorola Milestone Android 2.1 Update Finally Rolls Out In The UK, Brings 9 (!) Home Screens

About 40 minutes ago, Motorola posted a message to its Motorola Europe Facebook group announcing the launch of the Android 2.1 update in the UK for the Motorola Milestone (known as the Droid to the US users).

The update is not OTA is now available both OTA (over the air) and by executing a .exe file which seems to require a Windows computer and a MicroUSB Data cable (non-Windows users are out of luck?).

Clear Reveals Two New Wi-Max Equipped Android Phones To Be Released In 2010

Corporate press releases are usually pretty boring. Corporate press releases about quarterly earnings? Well, they’re a one way ticket to snoozeville for sure, but every now and then you glean a little nugget of information that rewards you for slogging through the PR babble. In this case, Sprint’s 4G partner Clear has let slip that we can expect both HTC and Samsung to release Android powered handsets with Wi-Max on board by the end of this year.

Evo 4G Available For Pre-Order At The Shack Later This Month?

Evo 4G Available For Pre-Order At The Shack Later This Month?

I spent about 15 minutes trying to figure out how I could open this post with a joke about Radio Shack’s abysmal name change to ‘The Shack’, but figured it’s well trodden ground at this point, so let’s just skip to the juicy bits: it appears that the gents over at Phandroid have been tipped off by an employee at the aforementioned Shack that Sprint’s Evo 4G should be available for pre-order by the end of this month.

Oprah Gets Her Hands On An Extremely Sexy Looking HTC EVO 4G, We Nearly Die Of Envy

Probably the most awaited phone of 2010 - the super sexy HTC EVO 4G (formerly HTC Supersonic) made an appearance today on a none other than an Oprah Winfrey show.

Sprint let her play with the device and we got to catch a quick glimpse of it, thanks to fanboydestroyer from Hawtwired.com (this is the proper credit which was apparently mishandled by some other site owners) who recorded this video from his TV:

The curves, the looks - June can't come fast enough.
