Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S is made to Fascinate; U.S. Cellular is also named

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.

This is a complete 360 from the verizon I knew back in the day...I have owned samsung products and for whatever reason I would still stick with the droid X, I just don't like samsung phones...I own the iphone 4 but I rather get the droid X this phone.

id generally agree with you, but since this is launching on just about every carrier, samsung would be a fool not to give it full support on upgrades. and hell, even if they dont, this phone will sell so many for the same reasons, that the mod community will make damn sure this phone has every option out there. lets just hope samsung didnt try to make it hard to root!

I hope verizon starts marketing android phones individually. So many phones; they should be given there own personality. VZW is deffinitly good at marketining the android platform. Lets go ahead and start markeing the phones with android as the added benefit. Google should really be selling the android platform. Dell doesn't sell microsoft windows it sells computers in its commercials.

The only problem is........it's still a Samsung! Their touch Screen phones tend to SUCK! Two words for you - Samsung Glyde! Why is it that theycan make a Touch screen that works SO well in the Incredible, but their own lineup blows chunks!?

Is it just me or am i the only one not impressed with Galaxy S (Fascinate)? Nice specs but not really a fan of Samsung smartphones. Most of them always have that cheap/chinsy look to them. From the Omnia to the Instinct (which is not a smartphone i understand but still) to the Omnia 2 now this one...idk. Not impressed at all. I'll stick with the X. @phoneguru173 - even tho I share your hatred for most Samsung phones i gotta disagree with your claim about their touchscreens. Yes, the Glyde sucked...but Samsung did correct that issue with the Samsung Rogue and also the Samsung Reality. Gotta atleast give em that.

why dont you go to a verizon store, it was for a remodel and instead of verizon wireless for ad's, it will be just verizon. also instead of saying "its the network" it is now "rule the air" which in other words, instead of putting the spot light on verizon it is putting the spotlight on the customers, saying here we are still the best but do what you will with your device on our network.
