I wonder how the folks over at Nokia are feeling now about hitching their wagon to MS....

In general, hasn't Samsung phones had trouble with updates for Droid OS as well? I have read several upgrades for the Galaxy series have frozen handsets or dumped data. Particularly on the Epic. This one may be more on Samsung then Wiindows, even though Microsoft is left looking bad.
