Samsung Fascinate: Android 2.2 Froyo Update to get Google Search

There has been a lot of talk lately on the inclusion of Bing search for the new Samsung Fascinate phone on Verizon Wireless. The good news, is that Google Search will be available as an option in the forthcoming Android 2.2 Froyo Update.

As reported from BGR, a Verizon spokesman has now issued a statement clarifying the matter, and confirmed that Google Search will be coming soon.

However, the key thing here is that Google Search will not replacement Bing Search as a default option, so when you still press the search button on the Fascinate, it will bring up a Bing search. So while you’ll be able to get a Google Search running on Android 2.2 Froyo, you will need to open up the application everytime to do so.

As for the update itself, we still dont have a confirmed period for when it will be dropping live for users. More details over at BGR. Are you disappointed about Bing being a default search option?

An unboxing video of the Fascinate can be seen here.
