Samsung, Verizon Ready to Fascinate You With a Gem

The release of the Motorola Droid 2 from Verizon Wireless is expected to get the biggest headlines later this month, likely Aug. 12, but Verizon has a couple of other smartphones from Samsung that are waiting in the wings, probably due for a September release.

One of them is the Fascinate,” and Android handset which we can only hope lives up to its name. A tipster tells Into Mobile that its essentially a version of the Galaxy S, which AT&T sells as the Captivate” and T-Mobile sells as the Vibrant.” Its expected to come with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display and a 5-megapixel camera that includes HD video recording at 720p. The only real difference from the Fascinates cousins over at the other carriers is a metallic body, rather than the typical dark frame.

Still not much information on the Gem,” except Into Mobile believes it will be an Android phone for the more entry-level user. Its said to have a smaller display.

There arent any pricing details just yet, but its likely theyll be under $200.
