I went to the local Best Buy this evening and talked to the sales people there. They are taking pre-order of the Fascinate right now. With 2-year contract, it is going to be $199. Unlike the Verizon store, there is no need to do mail-in rebate which is a big plus. If I order now, the phone will be at the store at launch day. Also, the Best Buy folks told me Froyo will be available for the Fascinate later this month and it will be OTA. They told me the GPS issue is not fixed yet, but will be fixed by the OTA upgrade. It affects some app but not all. Google Navigation will be affected. But if I continue to use VZ Navigator which I am currently subscribing, it will be fine. They showed me the Samsung Captivate which shares the same screen and interface. The screen is gorgeous! And it is very responsive. I watched a short video and it looks fantastic!!! My NE2 is not up until October. I am seriously thinking of forego that $100 discount and pre-order this phone. Now, I have one question for the Android expert here. I want to find out if I can get all the same app that I have on my BlackBerry for the Fascinate? Is it possible for me to browse the Android Marketplace without an Android phone? Can I access it through my laptop just to check?
