Samsung's Fascinate has been rumored to be coming on September 9th for some time now, but we haven't heard a peep from either Samsung or Verizon about the official release date. That changes today, as Samsung has begun airing a commercial advertising the Fascinate that states the handset will be "available Sept. 9 at Verizon." The same commercial has been available for a few days now (and can be seen here), but previously it only said that the Fascinate was "coming soon."
So now we know that September 9th will be the Fascinate's big day and that it will launch for $199.99. It's kind of strange that we're only three days away from seeing the device land in stores and we still haven't heard anything from either Verizon or Samsung on the Fascinate, but maybe they want to give us a nice surprise the next time we stroll into a Verizon store?
