On May 12, Telus, a Canadian wireless carrier, is expected to launch the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate 4G, which is the successor to the original Fascinate on Telus. Sporting Android 2.2, the other obvious difference between the soon-to-be release Fascinate 4G and the original Fascinate is the presence of a 4G radio. Telus’ 4G network can theoretically deliver speeds up to 21Mbps. How often you will be surfing the web with those speeds I cannot say, but I’m positive the speed difference between 4G and 3G will at least be obvious.
In terms of pricing, Mobilesyrup is reporting the off contract price is $529.99, the one year contract price is $479.99, the two year contract price is $429.99, and the three year contract price is $99.99. Even though being tied down to a three year contract may seem restrictive, the amount of savings of the up front cost for the phone could be worth it.
