    I use this button all the time on my DINC for voice commands, usually things like locate .... and it pops up google maps and shows me what I'm looking for. Since Bing is the search engine of choice on the Fascinate, what function will holding down the button serve? Will it still allow Google Voice commands? If not, I think that's a deal breaker for me.

    That is the question of the day, and not definitively answered as of yet I believe.

    I believe this will all be driven by Bing

    But that would mean it won't be anything like google, because with 2.2 you can do all this with google voice actions and I don't think you can do any of that with bing.:

    You are correct and exactly why people are upset that VZW has chosen to break the phone. No worries, it will be fixed with root, but without root this phone will be at a major disadvantage.
