Android folk, make sure and install the Amazon App Store.  You get a free paid app every day.  I'm already rocking Angry Birds Rio and Doodle Jump...

That is very cool!  Amazon can definitely teach Apple a few things about being customer-centric.

Right about now I'd just be happy if Samsung/Sprint could get their shit together and get Froyo out on my Epic. Latest update was just pulled again.

I hope that means the Verizon Fascinate will get a Froyo update soon.  It was supposed to be out by the end of 2010.

After my rant I woke up this morning and there it was  :-X
There were a few people over at androidcentral's forums claiming the update was pulled but I guess that was bunk, never heard nor read of it from any real sources.

I tried out a co-workers Evo using 3g today and was blown away by the speed.  It was faster than my iPod touch on wi fi at my house... by a lot!  I currently have the Samsung Moment which will not be getting Froyo and I'm thinking of upgrading.  For financial reasons I cannot go to Verizon so the iPhone is out of the question.  Does anyone have an evo?  If so, is the battery life with android 2.2 as bad as I've read for this phone?  The three people at work that have them love it, but I trust the opinions here more.

So I went and got the Evo today and am very happy with my purchase.  I love this phone.  Hands down the best I've ever owned.  While I still think the iPhone would be great, I no longer have iPhone envy.  Awesome phone that I highly recommend.

The Amazon AppStore is really delivering.  Fruit Ninja is free today, yesterday was SoundHound Infinity, the day before that was the ad-free version of Angry Birds Seasons.
