We're not-so-patiently awaiting the arrival of the Verizon Fascinate -- the fourth version of the Samsung Galaxy S to drop in the United States -- which has gone silent since our initial hands-on at the launch party. But that doesn't mean it's not out there, and it's starting to get into a few hands ahead of what we believe will be a Sept. 9 launch. And that means it's getting into our hands.

So, after the break, an octet of pics of the Fascinate, as well as some benchmark scores. Enjoy!
