Good news guys, went to a verizon store because my mom wanted to know when her mortorola droid was going to get froyo. She mentioned to the guy that I had gotten an update and I told her it wasn't froyo but a minor update and that the eris probably wouldn't get the froyo update. The guy told me and her that both our phones in late august.
Now while I don't know if the guy knew what he was talking about but it at least gives us some hope that we will be getting froyo in the near future. Fingers crossed.
I am almost certain that there has been an official HTC press release stating which devices would be updated, the Eris was not included on that list. The phone is old and almostvoff the shelf so I think 2.1is the end of the line, officially.
