HTC Droid Eris

So this isn’t real­ly gam­ing relat­ed but it’s tech­nol­o­gy relat­ed so i fig­ure what the hell.  Yes­ter­day i picked up a droid HTC Eris from the Ver­i­zon store.  I am switch­ing from a Black­ber­ry Storm which I have had for about 1 year.  After hav­ing this phone a day I can hon­est­ly say that i pre­fer it by miles to my storm.  One of the things that stands out the most to me on this phone is how respon­sive it is.  I click/press on some­thing and it instant­ly opens.  I can recall many times on my storm when i would press on some­thing and it would take lit­er­al­ly min­utes for it to open my text mes­sages.  Anoth­er issue I’ve noticed that I don’t have to deal with is hav­ing to many appli­ca­tions open at once.   The storm has a “task man­ag­er” of sorts and if you have to many appli­ca­tions open at once it will sim­ply crash the phone.  I for­get to close apps all the time result­ing in fre­quent phone restarts.  Anoth­er big­gie is the app store, there are sim­ply WAY more apps with the droid.  When the storm came out they claimed that there would be a large num­ber of apps and that it would be a Iphone killer.  This sim­ply isn’t true.  I’ve only had the phone a day but after using it for 24 hours I can hon­est­ly say I pre­fer it to the storm.  Any of you guys have this phone?  If so what are your thoughts?

    I dont have that phone or any droid…YET…Ill be get­ting the Motorol­la Droid this year when I can upgrade unless there is some­thing bet­ter by then. But I did play with the Eris and I got­ta say I was­nt impressed, it was cool yes but seemed slug­gish and mun­dane com­pared to the Motorol­la, just my 0.02
