HTC Eris to Cost $99

Posted on 4:34 PM by RumorGadget

With the Motorola Droid costing $199 with a 2 year contract, the HTC Eris is primed to be the "consumer" oriented Verizon Android phone, with rumors pricing it at only $99 with a 2 year contract. This makes the Eris significantly cheaper than the $179.99 HTC Hero available on the Sprint network. The Droid and Eris will be rather affordable Android smartphones, proving that Verizon is really serious about saturating the market.

The Eris will have a pretty lackluster 528 MHz processor, but it still has Sense UI, which looks prettier than Android 2.0. Style (Eris) or substance (Droid)?
