I've been lurking as I watched things unfurl, largely due to the earlier push towards the HTC phones (since I have an Eve). I have been attempting to make a few waves (emails to the ootp, etc), and I can also say that LG support is no better than Rogers support is (or was, I guess, now...).
Specifically, I was told by an LG tech that the Android 2.0 update was available and could be downloaded directly from the Android website..
So, once again, things look bad -- and I'm especially afraid of the upcoming release of up to 10 android phones this year - I'm really hoping they're not all dead-ended with whatever version of the OS they come with. It will be more than a little annoying to have to buy a different phone with an almost identical profile just for an update.
Having said that, other than this issue (and the resulting lack of functions that I should have due to OD upgrades and new apps), it's a snazzy little phone.
