    Bing?!

    So, the Fascinate reportedly comes with Bing Search and Maps. WTF? I want Google Search and Maps on my Google phone. Can this be changed without rooting?

    This is why you have an exchange period. I would do it just based on that alone.

    Just trying to save $35.

    Is Google Navigate available in the Market? I don't see it on the Fascinate Apps listed here ~ that would be a deal breaker. Great form factor but these software decisions are weird.

    Google Maps is in the Droid Market and that comes with Navigate built into it.

    I'm more so worried about if I can change it to the default. The more I look at the phone the less this becomes a deal breaker, but definitely still a heart breaker. Why Verizon? (I actually know why)

    Yeah as long as you can download maps. From people I have talked to they odn't really use the search widget that often anyways. Most of my friends don't even keep it on their home screen so I think I'll be able to live with out it.

    just keep in mind vzw can lock down agps to vz navigator, like they did with the palm pre. im hoping not i can live with bing search, but if i cant use the free google navigation, and have to pay vzw for navigation i will pass on this phone. or just hope they root it and get rid of bing all together
    Upgrade now or wait hmm that's the question

    there are two things to rember here. First this device is powerd with Bing that makes itself not a member of the ' Droid " family. Second if root is attained the something like Froyo can be ported to it and google maps and nav would work
    Sometimes , It is what it is !
