Verizon LG Vortex spotted with Android 2.2 and Microsoft Bing

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on September 23rd, 2010

While HTC’s Android-powered smartphones come with a bunch of apps from Google, Verizon Wireless’ LG Vortex is taking a different approach. It will go with Microsoft instead. Similar to the Samsung Fascinate, the LG Vortex will ship with Microsoft Bing as the search engine, along with Bing Maps to help you navigate.

Android 2.2 runs on a 600MHz processor, accompanied by an integrated FM radio. Does this chance your mind about wanting the Vortex, or are you cool with Bing?

Google Search coming to the Samsung Fascinate with Android 2.2 update

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on September 12th, 2010

If you purchased the Samsung Fascinate from Verizon, then surely you have noticed that the phone comes standard with Bing instead of Google, and getting the Google Search application installed is a pain. This is because Verizon and Microsoft have entered a multi-device deal to promote Bing.

This might not be a deal breaker to most, but to some of us it’s pretty annoying. To anyone who prefers Google’s search engine to Bing, it is annoying. At least we have some good news. According to a Verizon Wireless spokesperson, when the Fascinate is updated to Android 2.2, users will be able to download the Google Search application to get easy access to Google’s search, but the downside is that users will still be unable to change the default search setting from Bing to Google.
