I'm getting the Samsung. They're both pretty comparable so I'm not going to get into a specs battle. For me, The Fascinate looks better and is smaller. Yes, I've held an Evo and it was just too big for me. Great for watching movies on, not for holding that brick to your ear. Again, just my opinion.
The only thing I fear is that because its running its own version of the Android OS that it may be way down the line for 2.2 support. And that because its going to be released around the same time as the Droid X and Droid 2 that more people will buy those phones which will lead to more people hacking those phones and opening up the development.
I expect these 2 devices to receive root asap.
The INC suffered because of limited supply and US only device.
Still a tough call either way. I don't know which device to get either.

The specs on the Verizon variant haven't been released yet. So its a bit dumb to try to compare them yet. Plus the X isn't even out yet lol
The post is speculative. We've seen video reviews of these devices. Well most of us who read the news articles from the multitude of Android sites.
I feel a comparison is valid at this stage even though device is still unreleased. We do have an idea for what the specs should be like on the Facinate. It shouldn't differentiate from the stock Galaxy S. Maybe no front facing camera for the facinate.
BTW I found your post insulting. Rather then bring relevance to the conversation, you decided to mock me and call me dumb. Not very friendly behavior.
If you have nothing to add to the discussion,besides direct insults, then please think twice before posting.

The new Motorola phones are probably going to have a digitally signed bootloader. That means that while they will likely be rooted, it is unlikely they will have their bootloaders cracked anytime soon.
So actually I think it is likely there will be a much more active modding culture with this phone vs the Droid X or Droid 2.

As far as i know the Facinate will have Google Maps and Search preinstalled.
If, however, the Facinate has Bing preinstalled then it will heavily influence my decision. I require a device with the full Google experience out of the box.

The Verizon Fascinate is definitely the homely stepchild of all the Galaxy S versions based on it's lackluster hardware specifications. All the other Galaxy S models (Epic, Captivate & Vibrant) come standard with 16GB of internal memory, yet the Verizon Fascinate only has 2GB of internal memory. Verizon + Samsung Fascinate = Fail!
