The Samsung Fascinate which is going to be sold online from September 8th however has some minor quirks. It does ship with the famous Android OS but Samsung has not used the latest version, the Android 2.2 Froyo. Display has always been a forte with the Samsung Smart phones and the Fascinate is no exception. Its super bright AMOLED screen makes watching movies or using in direct sunlight a breeze for the users. Verizon is likely to offer Froyo update for the users later.
The Samsung Fascinate that is arriving on September 8 runs on a really powerful 1GHz Hummingbird Application Processor which means multitasking will not be a problem for the users. To enable faster typing there is a virtual QWERTY keyboard that supports SWYPE technology. The charging cradle is also pretty useful for the users who want entertainment on the move. The powerful 1500 mAH battery ensures that the demanding users do not have to charge the phone every alternate day.
