The Samsung Fascinate is the forth Galaxy S phone to make its way to a US carrier. Like the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate, the Fascinate is a slate design Android smartphone with a vivid 4" Super AMOLED display. It has a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, 2 gigs of internal storage plus a 16 gig microSD card, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth and a GPS that works with VZ Navigator and Google Maps.
The Fascinate is available now for $199 after rebate with a 2 year contract. Like the rest of the Galaxy family it has Samsung's TouchWiz 3.0 UI and a 5 megapixel camera, though the Fascinate adds a flash (sorely missed on the Vibrant and Captivate). The only odd thing about this otherwise really lovely Android superphone? It uses Bing for search instead of Google.
