Two new phones hit the street

The Motorola Droid which officially went on sale this morning (yesterday @ Best Buy), has gotten most of the shine in the mobile world over the past two weeks but it's not the only new toy hitting the market this week. Both the HTC Droid Eris (today) and the LG Chocolate Touch (yesterday) made their Verizon debuts.

Some of you may be asking yourselves,  "if I'm shopping for a new phone why would I want to go with anything other than Motorola's Droid?" $ would be the primary reason. Think of the Droid Eris as the little brother to the Droid, being that it comes in $100 cheaper, at only $99.99 (after rebate/discount on a 2-year contract) compared to the Droid's $199.99 price tag. For the price you are still getting a hot phone. The Eris is running on Android 1.6, but from everything I've seen and read it's still a fast device, and the touch screen is responsive and quick. Also with HTC's Android interface, you can customize your phone's home screen with widgets and apps, and make the device work the way you want it to. The Eris doesn't have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but for people who don't mind or prefer typing on the touch screen you might want to give this phone a look.

LG's new Chocolate Touch isn't in the smart phone category, but a lot of people don't need or want a phone that can do everything. What the chocolate does do well is media. The Chocolate is a solid phone for playing mp3's, snapping flix (3.2 megapixel camera), staying connected with people (one-touch access to Twitter, Facebook, & Myspace), and browsing the internet. The phone even comes with an FM radio tuner (why would you need FM when you can listen to us), for those who still need their dose of mainstream. I'll be honest, this phone isn't really in my lane, but if you have lady or teenager in your life this might be the right fit. You can grab this phone for $79.99 with a discount on a 2-year plan, but keep in mind, the phone only comes with a 1GB SD memory card, so you'll probably need to spend an extra $20 to pick-up more memory.
