    Wow...already rolling out with an update...that's not exactly cool. Way to provide the world with a, what seems like, way too early released phone. Already giving out an updated to your crippled device not even a few days after its release? Craaaazy!

    Uh, actually it's really cool. Nice to have support. I had the POS LG Ally and it never saw an update.

    A lot of things happen when you do a large deployment and small issues are bound to be found that wouldn't be caught on a relatively smaller test size. I see this as extremely positive, unlike Apple, who phone owners heard nothing from for over a week and even denied any issues.

    I think this is also very positive. Small updates to enhance features is nice, even quickly after the phone releases. It shows that they are concerned with enhancing the phone.

    Nothing wrong with an update this soon, I am sure they could not foresee some things and now with 25,000+ devices out there. Hiccups are sure to show.
