Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S)
CNET Review is up
The good: The Samsung Captivate features a gorgeous Super AMOLED screen, a 1GHz processor, and 16GB of onboard memory plus an expansion slot. The Android 2.1 device also offers great call quality, full wireless options, and a HD video capture.
The bad: AT&T won't let you sideload apps. Camera lacks flash.
The bottom line: The Samsung Captivate is easily AT&T's best Android offering to date, delivering great performance, tons of features, and an easy-to-use interface.

Very much looking forward to this phone!!!
But I have been looking forward to this phone for about 2 months now.
Here's my question:
Anyone see any obvious limitations or negative features about this phone???
Personally I wish it had the keyboard like the Sprint version and I wish is had a damn flash for the camera. Seems pretty easy to have this basic feature on a phone.
Very difficult question about the phone and android.
Thanks in advance.
Trouble with Yahoo mail
The problem that I am having is that it keeps saying that user name and or password is inncorrect but it's really not. Just wondering if anybody else was having this problem.

Sync With Laptop
I am having an issue when I go to hook up my phone via the USB cable it came with to my laptop. I am running windows 7 and when it tries to install the driver or hardware needed on my laptop it says that it has fail.. I have tried this about five times now with the same result in the end. I would like to be able to sync them up and use my internal phone memory as well.. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks
Anyone know if it's possible/easy to sync music with iTunes? MP3 format
Will it ever ship with Android 2.2?
850/900/1900/2100 MHz UMTS
The review indicates that the Captivate doesn't have the 900 MHz band required outside of North America.
Which is correct? I'd hate to buy one and not have it work when I need it.
Is there an international version with all 4 bands?
If the phone is rooted, can the 900 MHz band be activated?
Is Bluetooth Crippled on this Phone? Any other Crippling?
In general, are there any other limitations at&t has imposed (beyond no 3rd party apps)?
I really want this phone, but I'm so used to unlocked/unbranded phones and I'd like to know what's crippled relative to an unlocked version.
Thanks in advance.
No sideloading = no buy!
Recieved the Demo today!
Size Dimensions are wrong
I have no idea where they pulled those numbers from.
These size dimensions are totally wrong. The retail box reads:
