    Samsung Fascinate...NO GOOGLE !!!!

    My business partner just got his Samsung Fascinate today by way of our Verizon Rep...to his surprise there is NO GOOGLE anything on this phone. It is driven by a Bing search engine, and has no google maps and no access to the market to download. Appearantely the operating system does not support google apps. I can't believe there is no one saying anything about this and does anyone know who made this decisions...Verizon or Samsung...who's to blame

    According to droid-life.com per a tweet, you can install google maps and stuff on it.

    That would be a Samsung decision. I saw that about the bing stuff, but am surprised that there would be no Market access nor support for Google applications. That part just makes no sense.

    IIRC the Samsung Fascinate has always been said to be Bing Driven.....
    A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

    Correct. I have an update that's burning to be used and I STILL can't find anything worth upgrading to.

    Fascinate has failed to fascinate me. What a waste of a device.

    Where is this info. When he did a online search the info he found said the phone would not even support google maps without rooting it. I own a Droid X and i'm not familiar with the Samsung at all, but we have a large number of phones on a business plan (most Droid based) and he's talking about canceling Verizon he's so pissed and is blaming Verizon. I understand it has no Google Search, which means no google voice commands or voice recognition driven by google, which sucks, but is there an actual way to put Google Maps on the phone without any major mods?

    I think I gave up hope on the MoDropro

    I will be surprised if it turned out to be what I initially expected it to be

    I like the fascinate... I don't care about bing because I can root it and install custom roms (cough droid X) to remove bloatware ect.
