Verizon. Their meddling is intolerable.
Samsung. They couldn't write software if they hired XDA.
Both. Russian school children could colaborate more effectively!
Who's the problem with froyo?
So now that we've had a chance to chew on some official 2.2, even if it's from another carrier I'm curious what the consensus is about our "problem".
I'm personally of the opinion that verizon has totally ruined the fascinate by forcing too much bloatware on board, and using sub-standard apps at that. If you look at the time line, verizon was the LAST major carrier to pull off a launch, by something like 6 months if I'm not mistaken.
I haven't faulted samsung for more that a moment through the whole "Where's froyo? " debacle. Anyone got an opinion?
Even better, I think samsung should go all apple on the carriers and say no, you can make apps available through the market for all of your spammy obnoxious bloatware. Maybe, just maybe, we'll let you load an app that links to your section of the market.

Samsung: "But if we add your apps and custom settings the OS is slow and stops working, without them the phone works flawlessly"
Verizon: "Well make it work. They can wait"

I just saw this article this morning and I thought it was interesting.
Google tightening control of Android, insisting licensees abide by 'non-fragmentation clauses'? -- Engadget
"Things have gotten so heated, in fact, that complaints have apparently been made to the US Department of Justice. They may have something to do with allegations of Google holding back Verizon handsets with Microsoft's Bing on board, ostensibly in an effort to trip up its biggest search competitor."
I'm not sure if the allegations about Google/Verizon/Bing only means new phones rather than updates to existing phones, but I sure got me wondering...
