This android based phone has 4-inch, 854-by-480 Super AMOLED touchscreen and comes with a 1-GHz processor running the Android 2.1 operating system. The Fascinate’s software is a mix of Samsung, Google, and Verizon contributions. The home screen features Bing and Bing Maps, and the Fascinate will come with a Blockbuster app.
The Fascinate is slim, smooth, and comfortable to use. The body design is a lot more generic than that of Verizon’s other top Android smartphones. According to Samsung, the screen is really bright, 80 percent less reflective than the standard AMOLED on the HTC Incredible. Samsung said that the Fascinate will get an upgrade to Android 2.2 with Adobe Flash, although Verizon wouldn’t confirm timing on that upgrade.
The actual price and launch date details for Fascinate are not yet released by Samsung.
