I had the Droid and went to the Eris because i figured i liked the form factor better than i did that of the motorola Droid. Let me tell you that the screen on the motorola droid makes this device much better. I felt like i downgraded by going to the Eris. Although typing on the virtual keypads is much much better on the eris. I will stay with the Droid simply because it is faster all the way around and the screen looks that much better, after using motorola droid screen for 2 weeks looking at any other screen the letters look blurry.
