    Let us simply say that we are being OFFICIALLY dissed now by everyone. Android Version 1.5 (cupcake) is no longer supported.

    Here is what we will miss in the Google Maps update: Google Maps Mobile 3.4 - which finally brings multitouch - (pinch to zoom) - to Google Maps Mobile (Must have Android 2.0 or greater). Additional updates are the support for starred items from google.com, which are now synced with Google Maps Mobile, as well as search suggestions from maps including the desktop Google Maps search history. Google Maps Navigation (only available in certain countries) now supports night mode navigation.

    I've lost all faith in Samsung/TMO giving us an update. It seems that because of lackluster sales with the Behold II, they have wriiten us off as a beta project gone sour. Their mindset is probably not to throw away any more good money on bad money. It's really dissapointing considering that they didn't even promote the Behold II to begin with and now all they can give us to appease our wrath is a blanket response like "there ar no further updates at this time".

    If 2.0/2.1 doesn't get here by summer latest, I've already considered jumping to the next available Iphone ship that rolls into town via TMO. I don't really want to fall into the apple cloud but at least they boast a finished product.

    We can now safely add Google Buzz to the mix of things we WON'T be getting. Buzz only supports OS 2.0 and above.
