Samsung Fascinate Still Coming to Verizon, Just Not Soon

So, the Motorola Droid X is launching tomorrow. And, to be honest, we were actually just about ready to put up a post trying to determine which device all of you were more excited about. Which device you were going to slap your hard earned money down for. But then this happened. And well, considering the news we think we may already know the answer. Though, feel free to voice your opinion anyway (Droid X or Fascinate). According to Verizon, it doesn't look like the largest wireless company in the United States knows when they're launching the highly anticipated Super AMOLED handset.

We showed you a Verizon Summer catalog yesterday, and while the focus was on the Droid X and Droid 2 (which is all well and good, in of itself), there was one device missing from the summer releases: the Fascinate. So, obviously some folks got pretty curious. After getting in touch with the company, Android and Me has shed some light on the situation. According to the representative they spoke with, Verizon has every intention of launching the handset, but they just don't know when that's going to happen.

No date determined for the launch, while every other major carrier is hard at work getting their own out (in fact, one of them launches tomorrow). What's worse, is that Verizon apparently is planning for "late Summer or early Fall." And, well, "late" Summer is still the Summer, and so we're going to go ahead and assume that it's going to be some time in the Fall. And if you're anything like us, you hate waiting. We're hoping Verizon clarifies this sooner than later -- we want our hands on this handset.
