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.

Android Haters Read Here...

🙂 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...
I am going to predict 2 million iPhone 4's sold in July in the U.S alone and on AT&T alone.

Android is a cool OS, I'll say maybe 200,000 of the galaxy s will be sold on AT&T this YEAR. maybe that many.

I personally love the iPhone.

But thi...
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...

At what point is the screen too big...

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?
I agree....I think this has reached that point. Anything more than this is just uncomfortable to hold
I agree. 3.7 is just fine for me.

It's too bad that IT&Ts data plans ruin smartphones, cause this thing is one heck of a beast!!! Even has BT 3.0 & Wifi N!!!
Honestly, that's what it comes down to. Trying to enter text or tap the corner of the screen on phones like the HD2 and Evo is a stretch for most thumbs.
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...
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...

Samsung Captivate

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.

An android smartphone w/ a 5MP shooter....and no camera flash......... 🤣
And yet it took apple 4 years to get a flash on their camera.. and people seemed to buy it anyway.

🤤 sign me up..... 😲 wait....i will go through my 2 gigs of data on this sucker in the first week.....nevermind 😢
Plus I am sure AT&T will cripple it somehow like they have done with the HTC Aria.... 🙄
I've already useed 5.7gigs with my Moto Droid, and I still have a week left in my billing cycle.

I wonder if all these people buying the new Iphone are aware that these new data plans from ATT essentially render smartphones useless.
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...

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 😛
right I'm with u on this one
What BB's does ATT have that Vzn doesn't?
AT&T has the only iPhone but has a bunch of hobbled Androids that can't compare with VZW.

VZW doesn't have an iPhone, but its Android lineup blows AT&T out of the water.

Otherwise, smartphone lineups are pretty much the same. Thats why everyone ...
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...
It's not that they don't have other phones to offer, it's that they seemingly go out of their way to make sure those phones fail.

Let's just look at android:
-The locked down the backflip so much it couldn't even use google voice search.
-on ALL ...

Please God

Don't lets at&t fill that 16gb with bloatware. How many media mall links does a phone need for crying out loud!!
I suppose you could root it, and put a custom ROM on it.

This Competition is Insane

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.

Which phone is the best?
