Droid Eris owners are on the clock for Android 2.1

Verizon hinted that a major Droid Eris update was coming when they updated the release notes on their official support page. Now it looks like Eris owners might be the first in the U.S. to see their first-generation Android handset get an upgrade to firmware version 2.1.

An over the air upgrade is scheduled to begin May 11th, according to a leaked slide posted over at MobileCrunch. The document has today’s date, so chances are this information is still good. We already learned the Android 2.1 upgrade will require a wipe, so users should be sure to backup their important information to their SD card.

If you happen to receive the upgrade tonight, please chime in and let us know how the overall process went.

"Customers should back up all data."
