Verizon retiring the Samsung Fascinate
Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S version that was the Fascinate was one of the best Android handsets you can get on Big Red at the time it hit shelves last year. It had a good run, if we don't count some bugs and the belated Froyo update, plus it is expected to receive Gingerbread as well, but now it has to move over and hail a new king.
Samsung Galaxy S II version for Verizon is nearing its announcement and launch. We've heard rumors about the handset being called both the Function or the Stratosphere.
Whatever the final title is, the Samsung Galaxy S II is poised to make a big splash when it lands in Verizon's pool.
