Here's they come, the Galaxy S phones. AT&T just announced pricing and target availability for their version, the Samsung i897 Captivate, and it will beat the T-Mobile version by a few days and will probably become the first Galaxy S to hit the US.

The Samsung i897 Captivate is going on sale next Sunday, July 18 and it will cost 199.99 US dollars on a two year contract. Looks aside, the Captivate is an exact duplicate of the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S (with AT&T 3G bands of course).

To summarize the specs, the Android-running Samsung Captivate has a 4" WVGA SuperAMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz CPU and 5MP camera with 720p video recording.

The T-Mobile Galaxy S phone, the Samsung Vibrant is coming a few days later - July 21, again for 199.99 US dollars. And CDMA carriers are getting a Galaxy S too (like the Sprint Epic 4G which has a hardware QWERTY), though we don't have the availability dates yet.

No front facing camera because the networks in the states cant handle video calls. Its one reason I believe the iphone4 only allows video chat over wifi, they didnt want to call out AT&T and make them look bad so they said its only wifi at first(...
