    Will Verizon end up changing the name of the Samsung Fascinate to become the Droid Fascinate? I'm not sure about this one, I have my doubts..

    With the investment VZW has made advertising the "Droid" product line, I don't see any reason why this will not be another "Droid" branded device. So I am going to have to vote "Yes" - I have a feeling that ALL high-end Android devices on VZW will share the Droid branding.

    On a related note, I personally feel that VZW comes up with the STUPIDEST names for its devices. Droid Incredible..... Droid/Samsung Fascinate..... STUPID....

    I like the Galaxy name for the Samsung device ALOT more, Fascinate sounds borderline dumb.

    The Fascinate will not be under the Droid Branding... Droid Branding is reserved for "with google" devices. The Fascinate is "with Bing"

    The Reviews of the Galaxy S have the Google branding on the back. Is Fascinate a different phone?

    not a different phone, but there will be Bing Maps and Bing Search pre-installed, unlike its Galaxy S brothers on TMobile, ATT, and Sprint.

    QFT. WHY on earth does Samsung feel the need to put MS crap on Android? Leave the freakin' Bing for Windows Phone 7.

    Although most of us on this forum would prefer having Google as the default search provider and maps, I doubt the every day person buying a smartphone really cares. Still seems blasphemous though!
