I have heard very different things about the fascinate then what is being reported here. As opposed to the Droid x which is locked down, the fascinate is able to be fully exploited. From what I've read the rooting of the fascinate cures all of its bloatware woes. The gpu is also significantly betterthen that of the Droid x, which is a big deal for me since I like a seamless android experience, rather then choppy.
Believe me I love Motorola but I've stacked the two against each other by sorting through all the forums and comparasions. Fascinate just seems like the better product once rooted.
