Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S is made to Fascinate; U.S. Cellular is also named
We now have confirmation from three carriers that they will be launching a version of the Samsung Galaxy S. Verizon's Fascinate now joins the T-Mobile Vibrant and the AT&T Captivate. Sprint is expected to announce that a variant of the Galaxy S Pro will be its second 4G enabled device. Verizon's Fascinate will be powered by Android 2.1 and will feature a 4 inch Super AMOLED display and should be zippy with its 1GHz Hummingbird processor. Swype will come as a pre-loaded typing option and the handset will be capable of hosting 5 compatible Wi-Fi powered devices as a mobile Hot Spot.  Verizon's Fascinate will also come preloaded with Bing Search and Bing Maps. The carrier will load the phone with some VCAST and Verizon branded features like Video on Demand, Song ID, Visual VoiceMail, VCAST Tones and VZ Navigator. 2GB of  internal memory can be expanded to as much as 32GB and a 16GB microSD card will be installed right out of the box. The Samsung Fascinate will be equipped with a 5MP camera with AF, LED flash and HD video capture capabilities. In other words, this is another high-end Android model that will grace Big Red's lineup. Available in mirror black with chrome, no date was set for launch and no price was mentioned.

And while it is Sprint's turn to join the other top U.S. carriers with a Galaxy S variant of its own, it was a regional carrier that threw its hat into the Galaxy S ring today. U.S. Cellular will also be adding the super spec'd phone to its offerings of other Android models including the HTC Desire. Ed Perez, VP of  marketing and sales for the carrier said, "We are excited about the release of this Android powered smartphone. The Galaxy S delivers on our customers' need to have popular applications at their fingertips while keeping them in touch with those that matter the most." No name has been given to the model and the launch will take place some time this fall at an undisclosed price.
