Galaxy S marches onto Verizon

The first Samsung Galaxy S phone available to Verizon customers is now up for pre-order at Best Buy. This will be the third Galaxy S device on as many mobile providers since the platform first launched earlier this summer.

You can't pre-order it at Verizon Stores, yet, but Best Buy Mobile locations, including those built into regular Best Buy retailers, has it up for sale. It costs around $200 for those agreeing to a new 2-year contract. That puts it on par with the other Galaxy S phones, the Captivate on AT&T and the Vibrant on T-Mobile.

Sprint remains the other carrier that does not yet have a Galaxy S phone in its arsenal. That will change in a big way when Sprint's Epic 4G launches tomorrow. It will be the second phone in the US to have a 4G antenna, the other one also being on Sprint.

Galaxy S is Samsung's name for its best and highest-end Android smartphones. The brand has managed to resonate with customers, as more than a million of the Vibrant and Captivate phones, combined have already been sold.

Like all other Galaxy S devices, the Fascinate has a Super AMOLED screen and Android 2.1, which will be fully upgradeable to Android 2.2 hopefully later this year.

The Fascinate currently has a projected release date of September 9.
