Verizon’s Samsung Fascinate interrupts Droid lineup

Recently announced, the new Samsung Fascinate is going to be available for public pick-up later this week (or tomorrow online) for Verizon customers.  It will be sold for $199 with a 2-year contract.  It will be hard for the phone to fit into the Android “lineup” but by looking at the specs, it does a nice job of fitting in perfectly.

The Fascinate is part of the Galaxy S lineup and the first of its kind to come to Verizon.  Like I said, it does fit in very well. The phone will have a 4 inch touch screen with 2GB of internal storage and the customer will have the option of upgrading it with a 16GB MicroSD memory card.  The Fascinate’s 1500 mAh battery is said to be about equivalent to the Motorola Droid x battery meaning that it should definitely last you a decent amount of time.

The phone itself looks to be amazing.  It will have a 1GHz  processor making navigating the phone quick and easy.  Adding to that, the Fascinate will have high end 3D graphics and video acceleration bringing multimedia and gaming to a whole new level for customers.

Also, the phone will include a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and will also allow the user to record video in 720p!  The Fascinate will also have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability and will also include a 3.5mm headphone jack for all of your music and media playing needs.

To me, this phone looks great and I think it will fit in with the Android “family” perfectly (considering it is better than some Android phones).

Apple revealing a 4th Ipod Touch?

A case manufacturer named X-Doria claimed to have made new cases to fit the upcoming 4th generation Ipod Touch. From the look of the picture, the new Ipod has space for both a camera and a flash on the back side of the device and also room for a front facing camera. Also, the case has a rounded back meaning it will not be following in the footsteps of the Iphone 4.

To provide more “evidence” to this, Apple sent out invitations to a “special event” taking place on September 1st in California.

My thoughts on this? I think it would be great to have these new additions to the Ipod but it seems as though Apple is running out of physical upgrades for the Ipod Touch. It seems that the gap between the appearance of the Ipod and the Iphone is getting smaller and smaller so this may in fact be the last Ipod Touch generation.
