The thing I like about the LG Revolution is the amount of internal memory (12GB) compared to the Samsung Charge & HTC Thunderbolt (2GB).
The amount of internal memory plays a HUGE role in how much enjoyment someone gets from their Android device. Power Users download hundreds of applications over the lifetime of a device. And only a small percentage of applications currently support being moved to an installed microSD card (25 - 40%).
The Bing thing does really suck but you can install and use Google Search. But you'll probably not be able to make it the "default" search engine (which sucks).
Internet talk is cheap.
Man up, Show up, or Shut the @#$! up.
