SIZE

I went into the at&t store today to get my hands on this phone. I was really surprised how big it was. It really seems to me that apple has hit a sweet spot with the size of the iphone. I know there are people out there that want to carry around a 42in plasma in their pocket to make calls with, but I'm still baffled by the size of these new phones. I know it's not as large as an HD2, Droid x or an Evo, but this is still a large phone. That being said, the touchscreen seemed very accurate and responsive and looked great.

No LED flash???

Did I see/hear it right? The Captivate doesn't have a LED flash for the camera?

Will it ever ship with Android 2.2?

I'm just wondering if the Captivate will ship with Android 2.2 after it comes out. Or will it always have be an update by the buyer? This will help me to decide on whether to wait for the release of 2.2 or not. Thanks.

This phone should get a perfect score

Since the only thing he didn't like was the customization. This phone offers complete customization.

The reviewer is wrong about changing icons!!

I don't know what the reviewer was smoking when he mentioned that you cannot change the icons. You CAN. That's what the quick guide is for.

850/900/1900/2100 MHz UMTS

The Captivate specs on the AT&T website state that it is a world phone with 4 UMTS bands.

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?

Historically at&t has not crippled Bluetooth on their phones (besides the iPhone), specifically the ability to transfer files on/off the phone. But given their other imposed limitations, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Can anyone confirm if the Bluetooth is crippled?

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!

If I am stuck with marketplace apps, I'll just stick with iPhone.

Recieved the Demo today!

sweet feel to the phone. Not as large as I expected. The icons look goofy but thats just something to get used to. The Galaxy S symbol on the back is raised and rigid. Annoying to touch. Feels good in the pocket. that's all for now. and phone scoops dimmensions are correct

Size Dimensions are wrong

Phonescoop says the size dimensions are: 4.83" x 2.52" x 0.41"

I have no idea where they pulled those numbers from.

These size dimensions are totally wrong. The retail box reads:

4.18L X 2.5W X .39D inches

Memory question

According to most of the websites I've looked at, this phone has 16gb of built in memory, and has a micro sd slot as well. Is that correct?

iPhone Killer

A true iPhone killer. With the open platform the sky is the limit! Hears the big difference. If there is a feature that android or iphone can't do (i.e. copy/paste or multitasking, to name a few from the past) Android will only take a month or two to release it where as iPhone typically takes a year. Since video chat is available on android there is nothing this phone can't do!
So should you buy it? YES, but don't be upset when a better android device trumps it the following month.

Captivate

This is going to be my next phone, I wish AT&T would hurry up and release it.

P.S. I wish AT&T would have gotten the one with the keyboard.... Sad
