Verizon Announces Samsung Fascinate

Not to be outdone by the other carriers, Verizon announced its own flavor of the Samsung Galaxy S. Verizon’s version is called the Samsung Fascinate.

Here are the specs:

  • Android 2.1
  • 4″ Super AMOLED touch screen display
  • 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application Processor
  • 5.0MPcamera/camcorder with auto focus and LED flash, HD (720p) video recording
  • 2GB internal memory, 16GB microSD card included (expandable to 32GB)
  • 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities (connect up to 5 devices)
  • DivX support
  • Six-axis sensor and accelerometer
  • Virtual QWERTY Keyboard Featuring Swype Technology
  • corporate and personal e-mail accounts supported (Exchange ActiveSync)
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth with A2DP Stereo
  • 3.5mm headphone jack

There are no pictures of the Fascinate yet, and no information on release date or price. T-Mobile’s Vibrant is $200 though, so it will likely be priced in that ballpark.

In related news, it looks like US Cellular will carry the Galaxy S as well, without a name change, making it a pretty widespread unit.

As more information is released, it will be discussed here. Stay tuned.
