Looking to get a new Android smartphone for you and a friend? You may want to take a look at the Samsung Fascinate, which Verizon Wireless has started selling online starting today.
With the handset receiving endless flak for its paltry 2GB of storage (compared to the 16GB you see other Galaxy S phones toting), we always thought the carrier needed to do something to raise interest just a little bit. Turns out they are and they're doing it in the form of a buy-one, take-one offer.
A regular Fascinate on contract will run you $399.99, with the price including a $100 mail-in rebate. To sweeten the pot, Verizon lets you get a second phone for $99.99, with the entire amount eligible for another mail-in rebate. The result is you're paying $199.99, with another $199.99 in credits, for two units of the Android 2.1 smartphone. Sounds enticing.
In case you're unfamiliar with the Samsung Fascinate, it's a Samsung Galaxy S phone, with a 1GHz processor, 384 MB RAM, a 512 MB ROM, a 4-inch AMOLED touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera module (with 720p video recording) and Bluetooth 3.0. Both phones will come with a two year agreement under Verizon, including a $30 per month data plan.
