Features of each US carrier variant of the Galaxy S is either added or taken away from the orginal Galaxy S. The Samsung Epic with Sprint is the only phone that has the front facing camera and a physical keyboard. In addition, that phone and Verizon's Fascinate have a flash. The Captivate has no front facing camera, no flash, you can't side load apps because AT&T won't allow it, and no TV out. GSM just copied and pasted the specs from the i9000 and changed the coverages respectively for each variant.

for everyones information this is exactly the same as the i9000 software wise. if the i9000 has something so does the captivate. same os same ui same camera front and back, same processor. the dimensions are also the exact same. and it is also the same across the board except for the epic 4g because it has a hardware keyboard.

Samsung Captivate seems to be a fairly good response to iPhone 4 release and since it's antenna free problems will be more than succesfull, http://www.itsagadget.com/2010/07/samsung-captivate-will-be-released-soon-at-att.html
It looks like the FM Radio was removed on the Captivate.
There's no FM Radio app (but there's an AT&T Radio which isnt the same).
The BOX for AT&T's Samsung Captivate has been photographed and it says
Dimensions: 4.18L x 2.5W x 0.39D in / 106x64x9.9 mm
Weight: 4.5 oz / 128g
that is about 9 grams heavier than the International version of the Galaxy S.
Roberto, 11 Jul 2010WHY the HELL did samsung include led flash only on the CDMA models ???
Who knows, it could be a legitimate reason though. The chip set for the CDMA and GSM might be different in geometry some how and the CDMA version probably allowed some room for a LED light.
To re-engineer everything things around for the GSM version might not work out so well. Next time they should include the LED light from the beginning therefore it will be easier to engineer.

Anonymous, 09 Jul 2010Seriously how hard is it to build dual LED flash into the phone Samsung?It's flipping unbeliev... moreits not samsung who didn't incorporate the flash, as its in the verizon, and sprint models, at&t and t-mobile chose not to have it installed on their versions. blame them
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2010Samsung I9000 doesn't work in US on 3G, just on EDGE which is awfully slow.The Galaxy S works on the 1900 Mhz band on AT&T
Alman, 09 Jul 2010An AT&T Representative told me the Samsung Captivate does not have a Front Camera. I will ... moreSamsung i897 Captivate has exactly features like galaxy S i9000. If you have at&t service, you should get it on July 18 for $199.99 w/ 2 yrs contract.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2010Samsung I9000 doesn't work in US on 3G, just on EDGE which is awfully slow.Anonymous, I don't mind using the Samsung Galaxy S on EDGE network in the United States since it is the better phone over my iPhone features and quality. I need the Galaxy S for international purposes as well.
Seriously how hard is it to build dual LED flash into the phone Samsung?It's flipping unbelievable with the fine specs it has?Torch app with this and voila we'll get an almost be end all smartphone?
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2010All my phones were discounted, even free and the requests were made through email customer sup... moreThe phones on T-MOBILE US and AT&T are discounted if you get bound to a contract for 2 years post paid plan (excepting when it is an open box or for very old models on sale). If you wish to get the unlock code you have to pay the full phone's price beforehand or to pay an early termination fee to break the 2 years contract plus the remainder from like $200 that you paid for phone to its full price.
Probably you got some cheap Motorolas which AT&T wished to get rid of.
