First Look: Samsung debuts its Galaxy S line of Android smartphones - BusinessWeek
I still say mid august for the fascinate.
I'm so confused. What to buy.
I returned my Incredible. My choices are the X or the Samsung. I wish I could see them both in my hands and try them both out. Perhaps I can but the X and if I like the Samsung better, return the X for it?
I hate this winMo I went back to.
..im leaning towards the x but if the encrypted bootloader is true, idk. sammy?
im probably going to do what you said as well. I get bored of things way too quickly so I really need the flash a custom rom ability.
last winmo i had was a omnia, which was garbage until i hacked the crap out of it....what a difference!!
Since T-Mobile will be the first one to release their version. I would say wait till the Vibrant comes out because the exterior design and internals are mostly similar. It only comes out the week after the Droid X and I don't think Motorola has short supply of the phone unlike HTC does with almost every super phone they release.
I wanna step into Fascinate.....Love my Inc. to pieces, but Fascinate is sexier)))
any update on release date time frame?
Nothing close to official. No good leaks. Best guess right now is mid-Sept.
I keep hearing mid October
And where exactly are you hearing this??
It's all over the internet. October. Happy waiting.
Of course you could always buy an Incredible or the DX like I have! A truly great phone!
You have any links? And id rather wait i got the X and returned it just wasnt for me a little to big for my liking
Actually, THE INTERNET is all quoting 1 single source. There don't seem to be any reliable links with October dates. Phone Arena had one "source" who also said VZ is coming out with a phone called "Sick". So I'm not putting much credibility in that source at this point.
Having said that, I am already frustrated with waiting, and I wouldn't put it past VZ to really blow this release - which is exactly what they will do if they wait that long.
Also, unless Samsung themselves doesn't actually know the release date, the source would seem to be wrong. Samsung keeps tweeting "late summer" for the Fascinate release. Late September can be "late summer", I guess, but October can't ..
yeah people take that as gospel one online source and thats when something is coming out. Until there is an official announcement or something more credible im just going to wait
NKT (?), a forum member with reliable VZW info, had said about 4 weeks ago that the Fascinate had entered testing phase and that typically phones are released 6-8 weeks after testing begins. That is the most reliable info I have seen.
You are correct. NKT is reliable.
Does anyone have a link to where he said this? I am hoping this phone comes out within my 30 day period with Best Buy so I can go and swap phones.
EDIT: Never mind. I found it.
Damn so he thinks it will be released in late September/early October. That sucks...
well, I don't know what to make of this:
EXCLUSIVE: Verizon upcoming phones ? 10MP Android, Storm 3, two tablets and more by the end of the year (Phone Arena News)
If VZW is really planning a mid-late Oct release for the Fascinate, all I can say is WTF? I guess if I wait that long I will wait to find out what the HTC Merge is... Would love to upgrade to a smartphone on VZW, but not any of the current phones...
Already replied to in this thread . It is depressing if true, but we don't know it is
I don't see the Fascinate and Droid Pro being released in the same month. I have read in a couple of blogs and forums, so more rumor than fact, that the Droid Pro may be released later than initially planned, thus I can see the Droid Pro as a "Black Friday" phone and the Fascinate being released anywhere from mid September to mid October sort of midway between the Droid 2 and Droid Pro. But that is purely a guess.
They could be launched in the same month but i think verizon will try and release the fascinate a little before the droid pro so that more sales will go to the droid pro. Who knows though hopefully they just release the fascinate soon and stop waiting.
Idk what the big deal is i mean if you want a phone with a 10 mp camera then wait the extra month or so for that phone. There is always going to be something better right around the corner i just want the fascinate to be released so i can upgrade to that and i will get a 1 year contract because by this time next year something much better will be out and i can get that
