AT&T has confirmed launch dates for the Samsung Captivate, their version of the Super AMOLED Galaxy S smartphone. The Captivate will arrive on AT&T on July 18th, priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement (including a voice plan and $15 data package add-on).
That gets you a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, UMTS/HSPA, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0, along with Android 2.1 and the company’s own TouchWiz 3.0 UI enhancements. The Captivate also gets a 5-megapixel autofocus camera capable of 720p HD video recording (though, like the European Galaxy S, lacking an LED flash), 16GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot.
There’s also DLNA media streaming, all the usual Google Android apps – including access to the Android Market – and a 3.5mm headphone jack, gyroscope and accelerometer. The casing redesign looks pretty slick, too, and we’re hoping AT&T’s Captivate feels a little less plasticky than the European version. For more on the Samsung Galaxy S, check out our full review.
