HTC Droid Eris Pictured, I Really Hope It's Cheap

We've seen leaks of the HTC Droid Eris (on Verizon) before, but now there's a more official-looking shot from a Verizon training course—and it looks pretty much like the Hero, with some slightly different coloration and button placement.

The Droid Eris, remember, is supposedly a sort of odd blast from the past, packing only Android 1.5 and an older 528MHz CPU, and should launch alongside (aka "be overshadowed by") the Motorola Droid on, if the rumors are correct, November 6th. Not super enticing, but maybe it'll come it at a really cheap price point (like, $50), sort of like the Palm Pixi in relation to the Pre. [AndroidGuys via Engadget]
