Rumor: Verizon Droid Eris to get a software update on July 16th?

Man, its been a long time since we’ve had an episode of Good news, Bad news around these parts. You know what that means?


The Good News: After a few months of radio silence, Droid Eris owners might have an update to look forward to!

The Bad News: It is, unfortunately, not Android 2.2. DroidLife just got their paws all up on this leaked VZW memo, which shines a bit of light on what will go down.

Right around the stroke of midnight on July 16th (if all of Verizon’s stars are aligned, that is), Eris owners will start seeing an update trickle out. Don’t be expecting to blessed with sudden Flash 10.1 support or Android 2.2’s fancy new WiFi hotspot functionality — but do expect audio enhancements, improved stability, and few tweaks here and there around the OS.

Is it everything Droid Eris owners could hope for? Ehhhh, probably not. But an update’s an update, right?

Update: The headline originally read July 12th — that’s today, and that was a typo. It should have read July 16th, as the post did. Sorry folks!
