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(...
Just curious... I've long avoided facebook, don't know my way around. Where did you find this bit of information?
Darn good deal!
