    I actually don't like gingerbread. I only like soft cookies. Froyo, though, is delicious healthy yogurty goodness that cools... the soul? No... that's not right...

    Oh no not a whole 148 dollars! That entitles you to everything for free! And you have to pay for data to get *gasp* data? Who'd have thought!

    So should I expect a free upgrade from windows xp to windows 7 too? I mean, I do pay $70/mo for internet access!

    Upgrading... such is life. We will always want more and once we get more we'll want even more.

    I like how getting Froyo is the holy grail for some users. Yet in half a year they'll look down on it like they do to 1.6 now, and will be whining for the latest update, key lime pie or something.

    IMO, Google is responsible for this mentality (not that I blame them for doing it). They release fairly often and tout what will be in the next release, as they are just releasing the current release...

    Isn't one of the bestest things about Android the fact that it's open source and (keyword) free?

    So yes, I'd say he is rather entitled to an update that costs the phone manufacturers and wireless providers absolutely nothing.

    Costs them nothing?

    Ummm, let's see here - I think I still have the original FRG22D update that was sent out over the airwaves....

    Let's say it is around 45 MB. let's also say that the current number of retail subscribers is "85.2 million retail customers", as taken from http://www.crn.com/blogs-op-ed/the-...;jsessionid=pLPrDtvPu4XU9Ordj29R5A**.ecappj01 dated July 2009. Finally, seeing Android is sitting at ~32% of all VZW phones, but that is not truly fair as 2.2 has not been out that long - only since, say, June. So, in June, according to Nielsen: 32 Percent Of New Smartphone Owners Choose Android Phones Android was sitting pretty at 27% of all phones. Let's assume that carried over for VZW as well, so we have 85 Million phones and 27% of them Android phones. Now, if we look at the current distribution of Android 2.2 from Platform Versions | Android Developers we see that it is sitting at around 33%. Now, this entails all Android phones, so let's cut that number down a bit, to, say, 10% of all VZW phones being on FroYo and having received it via OTA.

    85 Million * 2.7% = 2,295,000 phones. Let's err on the safe side again and take roughly half of that, at, say, 1 million phones that have gotten the update so far.

    That's 45 million MB of data that they have had to push out to our phones for free.

    You bet yer ass it ain't free for them....and this is just VZW.

    Very interesting statistics. Provides quite the counter example when FanDroids chant "waaah it's freeeeee, betteeeeeer than iOSSSSSSS". Not to mention that Steve Ballmer a few days ago discussed that they also had to pay the intellectual property of the patents.

    Well maybe that's why Verizon has been overcharging for data
