No offence but what the c*&p are you talking, Symbian has less than 90000 apps, but android has more than one million apps now,also in symbian you cant sync google calendar and mobile calender as in Android, do you have any idea what the Android is?
With nokia N8 you cant use many apps and the only advantage is camera and music player, avi files are not played by N8, also N8 is not having gorilla glass display, glass display has very big effect on viewing text and videos(its the reason why all iphones having glass display).
you can take calls,listen music,watch some videos and play 30 to 40 games,sync gmail and other you can do these with N8, with android you increase these like many times, hundreds of games, many financial,travel,productivity,multimedia,games apps are there that too free version.
Why would a person who tasted this much goes to limited and very irritating symbian.
You may be nokia fan but android has many advantages compared to symbian, please use a android phone before comment anything.
I came here from the Nokia forums of gsmarena and I would like you guys to consider buying the Nokia N8 instead of this crap with terrible lag and gps issues. If you guys have any doubts about the Galaxy S please take your time and get to know the wonderful phone that is the N8. IMO, it is way better than this Captivate and it doesn't have gps issues or lags. Best of all, it's running symbian 3 which is better than android.
if you want to buy a cell phone
between Samsung I9000 Galaxy S and Samsung i897 Captivate which one do you choose?
Best place to buy this phone is from AT&T. You can get it for $500 USD. Now that's good pricing.
I get 5 to 10 meters gps accuracy, takes 10 sec or less to get a lock! My capivate is rooted, with froyo 2.2 installed from DG cognition http://www.ponack.net/designgears/index.html
This phone is just amazing, pretty fast, gorgeous screen, very good 720p video recording, Android is just the best OS out there, there's no restriction!

KS, 16 Nov 2010Any radio function on this phone? at specification show that there is no radio features, so sad..Just download the fre radio app from Android Market and that will be fine.....Android Market has everything....Just search through it!
Captivate definitely works in Australia. I'm using Virgin and I can call easily, no problem.
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2010Oh cool!
Wat about docomo?
and wat does adjusting network connections mean plz?@Anonymous: Sorry, but I have not checked with Docomo, as I do not have its SIM. But rest assured that an unlocked phone will work in any GSM newtork.
Reconfiguring Data: You will have to ask the customer care the settings of APN name, server, proxy etc, and manually enter in the phone. Unlike Nokia etc, these settings can not be automatically delivered to your handset in an SMS. But that is not a big deal. A few minutes ago I saw this model listed for 21.7K Brand ne and unlocked on Global Easy buy of eBay India.
