Release date for Verizon’s Samsung Fascinate is uncertain

Yesterday we showed you Verizon’s leaked summer catalog. And while it did feature some usual suspects, such as the Motorola Droid X, and even a yet-unannounced smartphone, the Motorola Droid 2, one device was strangely missing from it.

The formally announced Samsung Fascinate, Verizon’s very own Galaxy S, was nowhere to be found in the catalog, hinting to public availability post-summer season.

And now it looks like, indeed, this may be the last-to-launch of all the different Galaxy S variations to show up in the US.

Verizon’s official comment on the Fascinate’s release date now states a “late summer or early fall” possibility. And judging from the construction of that phrase, fall availability seems the most plausible right now.

So the Droid X and Droid 2 may have the high-end Android smartphone space on Verizon all to themselves for a few months.

And because of this, one has to consider that Verizon may be delaying the Fascinate on purpose, so as to not affect sales of the  aforementioned Droids.

    Catch up buckwheat. Verizon is already advertising it (seen it two nights ago). Release date is supposed to be July 18th.

    Typical Verizon Wireless, always puting the needs of its customer base last. Always last to market with great phones.

    maybe Verizon is going to hold off releasing the S and release the S2!

    “So the Droid X and Droid 2 may have the high-end Android smartphone space on Verizon all to themselves for a few months.”

    Really? You've relegated the Incredible to sub-high-end Android smartphone status?

    No that's AT&T's version the Captive that's coming out the 18th no mention of Verizon

    With 4+ weeks delivery delays, Incredible is more of a theoretical choice
    now, that Droid X is available.

    Typical Verizon Wireless service. What's good for the cutomer is always last on their list.
