    The Fascinate while nice is not going to win over many customers on Verizon simply because of the Droid X. When compared to the Droid X it is not nearly as feature complete and it is also lacking something. A confirmed update to Froyo in August. If Samsung follows through with their updates like they did with the Moment I don't see Froyo on this until at least years end if not later.

    The only real Droids are made by Motorola. All others are brother Android phones that Verizon IMHO has mistakenly allowed the title "Droid" to be added.

    What features does the X have over the Fascinate? From what I've seen, the Fascinate has more built in apps, faster GPU, arguably better screen, and is lighter, thinner, smaller and smoother than the X. Looks like a DInc killer to me. Would it be hard to replace Bing with Google? Thanks.

    Real shame, if it was pure stock, I'd be all over this bad boy.

    I'm a PC, love my Windows, but please keep the MS off my mobile platform :)

    I'd have bought a Windows phone if I wanted that crap :)

    Don't blame Samsung for Bing blame vzw they have the agreement with Microsoft. And I don't see this being a Droid phone with how much fluff vzw put in this

    I have always thought Droid Galaxy had a real cool ring to it.

    It does but if it were Droid branded do you think it would come with Bing. I think the Droid branding is for the android phones they don't touch to much

    This will not be a Droid. Don't know where people are getting this idea from.

    i have no doubt that this will be a droid phone look at the limited push behind it. and with it releasing on every carrier its not exclusive.
