    All this talk about software updates, now lets talk hardware! It's been fairly quiet with details leaking for the Samsung Fascinate. Today Android Central has skipped rumorville and right to screen cap city. If the timeline in the photo above is correct, Pre-orders will begin (to employees?) September 6th with a launch / release date on Thursday September 9th. This date would be just in time for the 2010 MTV Music Awards sponsored by none other then the Samsung Fascinate airing September 12th.

    Instead of using money to sponsor MTV they should just keep the money and give us all breaks on our bills.

    Like MTV needs sponsors and like our monthly bills aren't high enough.

    This is gonna be one hot phone. A few friends have the Captivate and Vibrant and they are REALLY nice handsets. All of them rooted to boot.

    Just when you thought there was nothing else to leak for the Samsung Fascinate, we have gotten our mits on a few images of the Equipment Guide giving the full run down of specs. Yeah, yeah…not a whole lot to learn about a phone that has already been released in one form or another a handful of times, and considering the Verizon Galaxy S won’t feature quite the same alterations as the Epic 4G for Sprint the list reads like old news.

    Perhaps the most interesting takeaway point is a release date of 9/8/2010 listed, a day earlier than the September 9th date we heard about earlier. Either this equipment guide or the leaked info from previous is outdated, but what difference would a day make anyway? Raise your hand if you want the Fascinate. Who’s excited?
