AT&T and Samsung today announced that AT&T will soon be offering the Galaxy S Captivate Android phone. The Captivate has a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor made by Samsung inside, which Samsung claims is ideal for 3D graphics and 3D sound. The Captivate runs Android 2.1 and features a 4-inch, WVGA, super AMOLED screen. The Galaxy S can play HD videos at 720p resolution, and the phone will be compatible with DLNA devices, allowing users to connect with home theater equipment. The Captivate has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and HD video capture on back, and a front-facing VGA camera for video conferencing. Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS, 16GB of internal storage, and Samsung's Social Hub software. The Samsung Galaxy S Captivate has quad-band GSM/EDGE and tri-band 850/1900/2100MHz 7.2Mbps HSPA. AT&T said it will be available later this summer. Pricing wasn't disclosed.
🙂 So what kind of clever bs do you think you can come out about this phone? As far as I can see this phone all ready promises what AT&T users have been waiting for in a Android OS. The iphone 4 is looking out dates all ready and is not even out yet!!!!
You know, I don't think anyone HATES Android. I think it's the fact that Android users seem so hostile against Apple that it gets annoying and people find the need to "Fight back." I don't think any iPhone users was really angry that Google created th... (continues)
You can load a 20 megapixel camera, a 4ghz processor, and a 600dpi screen on the thing, it doesn't change the fact that Android is still garbage. It doesn't change the fact that 80% of its features are half-assed, it doesn't change the fact that 99% o... (continues)
Definitely not hating on this phone because it looks simply amazing. But this is a question I had when I saw the HD2 at T-Mobile. Although we love more screen real estate, I wonder at what point does the screen get too big that it turns off normal consumers?
After owning the Evo for the last week and a half, I can honestly say that the 4.3 in screen was somewhat intrusive at first. My opinion has dramatically changed now. Everything is just awesome on the larger screen. It truly is a great experience.
I completely agree. You'll feel great about that phone for a month or so. Of course until something new comes out, and destroys it(spec wise). I too work for one of the hungry giants, but I feel like I cannot even buy a new phone these days in fear th... (continues)
🤣 seriously though its pretty big, but the EVO is big too and i dont have a hard time using it, but hey i use BT to talk so it doesnt bother me much. Plus the screen is a great size for watchin videos and movies and such (a kickstand like the E... (continues)
Would that be by next week? I mean, summer is basically here. I need a decent Android phone now, not by the end of summer. I thought about leaving AT&T for Verizon, but now that they are planning on bringing that phone, I would give them a second chance, but that doesn't mean I'm willing to wait until September. So AT&T, get your act together.
I am so tired of complaints about the new data plans, for the vast majority of customers, 2GB is more than sufficient, moreover the overage rates are entirely reasonable and predictable....$10 for additional blocks of 1 GB rather than the ridiculous p... (continues)
no matter what there will always be at&t haters out there
People are always saying that at&t has nothing other than the iphone. No matter how many new smartphones at&t announces coming out this summer, people are always fixated on "iphone, what else you got?" From what I see, they have more than any other carrier. Verizon may have the droids but they have nothing else. We have the only iphone, the best blackberrys, and now some really really nice Androids right around the corner. hate all you want, but we all know your just jealous 😛
Whenever I am out there 'in the real world' and not on a tech blog I constantly hear the complaint that 'AT&T has nothing but smartphones, there are no options for people who just want a regular phone we are all being forced into smartphones, they are... (continues)
OMG! The smart phones competition will never stop. Spend hundreds of dollars in a mobile phone that will be smashed by a new one of the other carrier the next week. I'm a financial representative for a huge US carrier (not mention it for security purpose) and can see the hungry users have for new smart phones, they don't care about price or if they can afford it.
Every time comes a new one and people start to say "my phone is a crap" but a few months ago they where surfing the Internet reading reviews and dreaming with it. In my opinion the Samsung Galaxy S will be another one.
