I beleave the long delay of the bold and storm was due to mods in the os and contract nagotiation between the carriers V and ATT. The mods in the OS as far as I can see ... disable GPS and only enable it if ATT Maps installed. Although they say .. other software may work ...
I have a feeling the same will be done with Sling Media.
