    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.
