AT&T getting Galaxy S with Samsung Captivate

Samsung's Galaxy S may have just dropped in on us earlier on today, but in a few months time it'll be making quite a splash on AT&T's network in the US.  The carrier has announced that it will be selling a rebadged, slightly redesigned version of the Galaxy S, the AT&T Samsung Captivate, "in the coming months"; still present are the Galaxy S' 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16GB of internal storage and Android 2.1 OS.

There's also WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and HSPA for up to 7.2Mbps downloads, AT&T's network depending.  Samsung will preload their Social Hub, which pulls in Twitter, Facebook and MySpace messages, while AT&T will slap on their Navigator app and AT&T Family Map.  There'll also be the regular Google Android apps, including access to the Android Market, a multitouch-compatible browser and DLNA media streaming support.

Samsung defend Super AMOLED over Steve Jobs iPhone 4 display snub

Samsung defend Super AMOLED over Steve Jobs iPhone 4 display snub

After Steve Jobs described his iPhone 4's new LCD-based Retina Display as being better than AMOLED panels during the WWDC 2010 keynote this past Monday, it was pretty clear that Samsung wouldn't let the snub slide.  While a Samsung spokesperson did concede that Apple's 960 x 640 display was higher resolution than their own Super AMOLED panel (as used in the Samsung Wave and Galaxy S), he also insisted that "structurally, IPS LCD technology cannot catch up with AMOLED display technology" in other ways key to image quality.

The Daily Slash: April 27th 2010

Does it feel like this week is going by pretty slow to you, too? We could've sworn this was a Wednesday, but thankfully we've got a daily tally, so we figured out the error of our ways pretty quickly. So, welcome to the Tuesday edition of the Daily Slash. Tonight, in the Best of R3 Media, we've got an unknown HTC Android device, Facebook changing up video formats, and a lesser version of the Samsung Galaxy S. And then in the Dredge 'Net, it seems that LTE will have more sustainability than WiMAX, a new PlayStation 3 firmware update to add a nice feature, and then finally the Zune HD gets some new games added to the library, along with a new app.

Here we are at the end of the week, and don't you feel better for it? Thanks for sticking it out with us.
