I am all about improved functionality especially Media playing from the web,
However if Froyo update breaks any functionality of my current apps / settings I will be put off. This is why I am very selective with what apps in install, I like to see active Devs. that are on top of their game with tweaks and updates.

This is bull you know what. 2.2 was supposed to be a september release. I was already mad enough at it being october if it turns out to be another delay like the release of the phone itself I think I may loose alot of faith in samsung/sprint.

Indeed in the garbage engadet review (their review have generally become puff pieces) the one good piece of information was their asking Sprint and Samsung specifically about Froyo, the response was, and I am paraphrasing as did engadget: about how long it took between launch of evo and its froyo update (almost three months?), and certainly before the end of the year.
Expectation of a sooner interim fix on the 150 download problem, which Sprint saw four weeks ago, and the GPS problem which device team is workign on, are one thing. But since the Froyo upate is widely expected ti include changes more complex than Evo's o2.2 port, such as dealing with features left off of Epic 2.1 reportedly due to slider landscape to portrait, and the general rush job to get Epic launched, it is not surprising it woudl be November or December. Let's just hope they do better testing than they did with 2.1.

It is just upsetting when so many have been enjoying froyo for so long and by the time we get it gingerbread will be getting ready to launch on google phones. I just hope this won't mean that we will be so far behind for 3.0.

Well, I can't speak for everyone, but what's most frustrating for me is Sprint's and Samsung's lack of communication and slow nature. The Galaxy S line is easily the only truly advanced Android device with Froyo. Samsung should been making Froyo for the Epic for months. Better yet, since Froyo was alread available for months, the Epic should have launched with Froyo, since their main competition already had Froyo (Evo 7G). If the phone didn't have so many bugs, maybe people would look past the lack of Froyo. The fact of the matter is that at $250 and an additional $10 premium per month, people have the right to complain. I love the Epic, but the lack of updates and communication make it feel like wasted potential. At least as of September 2010.

Should Sprint be more forthcoming? Perhaps, but I think they know that it's more of a problem to put out a release date and miss the target than it is to just keep the interested, and by interested I mean even knows about the advantages of 2.2, people happy.
I've just come to accept it as the nature of the Android beast. I used to think it was just the carriers fault, and then mostly the manufacturer's fault (in the case of HTC with SenseUI) but now it's simply what you have to come to expect with Manufacturer Skins on the OS and carriers who include their own apps. The N1 was the only way to avoid this, but even that has now gone by the wayside...
If you buy an Android phone, don't expect the updates to be out with the release of the OS. That's all there is to it. All carries and all manufacturers have the same problems and there's no way to avoid it on the consumer side.
