As promised , U.S. Cellular is delivering a Samsung Galaxy S device this fall, and it will arrive on October 27 under the name Samsung Mesmerize.

The Mesmerize will cost $199.99 after an $80 mail-in rebate and largely resembles Verizon's Samsung Fascinate in design. Like the rest of the Galaxy S series, the smartphone features a 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, Android 2.1, a 5-megapixel camera with HD video capture, and Samsung's Media Hub video store.

The Mesmerize will also come preloaded with Swype and a number of U.S. Cellular services, including Your Navigator Deluxe, Tone Room Deluxe, and My Contacts Backup.

In addition to the Samsung Mesmerize, U.S. Cellular will also launch two Android phones from LG--the LG Apex in November and the LG Optimum in December.
