Samsung is finally set to complete their quadfecta U.S. launch of the Galaxy S line with the Sprint Epic landing on August 31st and finally the Verizon Fascinate arriving just 9 days later.
Launching a device on all four major U.S. carriers is a fairly major feat so the fact that it took a little less than two months to get it out on all four carriers isn’t terribly surprising and matches up almost identically with the gap between the first and last launch of the HTC Touch Pro 2 which was the other smartphone in recent memory to manage to launch on all the U.S. majors.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with the Galaxy S phones by now and other than basic cosmetics the Fascinate matches up with the two other touchscreen only models the Captivate and the Vibrant.
One possible thing to look out for is the Bing app that we saw when we got our hands on with the Fascinate back in July.
Verizon customers shouldn’t be soured on Samsung as they weren’t subjected to any of the unfortunate early Android devices from Sammy, but between the already launched Incredible, X, Droid 2 and the upcoming Droid 2 World Edition among others coming to Verizon in the next couple months the Fascinate is really launching into a fairly stacked deck.
I’d assume no one will be leaving their carrier for the Fascinate so are any of you existing Verizon customers going to bite or are you going with one of the other myriad options available (or soon to be available) to you?
