Samsung Fascinate launch kits are now being sent out to Verizon stores
Well into the early portion of the new month, there are probably some Verizon customers who managed to hold off from buying either of the latest DROID models in favor of Samsung's take on Android. Now that it looks as though Verizon stores are beginning to see Samsung Fascinate launch kits, it shouldn't be too long before its inevitable release is here. These kits are specifically being used to train store employees on the unfamiliar TouchWiz 3.0 interface – something that they haven't seen before. So when a curious customer comes along inquiring about the upcoming smartphone, employees will be more than in tune with answering specific question about the handset. Still, its actual launch date is still in debate, but you know that it's only getting one step closer to that all too knowing realization.

give the people what they want I guess... I was never too impressed with the galaxy line until i got to play with the fascinate. It is really a good looking phone. By far the most aesthetically pleasing phone in the verizon lineup- which is what the majority of the population cares about

I would choose the Kin. Much better screen and the speed is mind blowing.

Google maps does not come pre installed on the device but is still available for download through the market. The google search will not be available as a widget as it had been replaced by the bing search widget.

Yes, the phone is very pleasing to the eye, IMO. TouchWiz 3.0's setup is very reminicent of the iOS as far as the icons are concerned. Ive actually fooled some of my fellow employees into thinking it is an iPhone due to the fact that if you cover up the touch sensitive buttons below the screen, it looks like an iPhone 3GS on the front. lol. I think this will be a great product.

I was playing with it today at work and it was pretty amazing. Smooth transition, beautiful screen. Just upset that it doesn't have the 8Gb internal hard drive. Other than that, nothing to complain about yet about it.
