Samsung Captivate hits AT&T July 18th

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.

Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile Officially Announced

Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile Officially Announced

Tonight is the night for Samsung announcements, apparently. The Samsung Epic 4G was just announced for Sprint, and now here we are officially unveiling the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile USA. It's missing the physical keyboard that the Epic 4G has, but other than that, we're basically looking at the same thing. Taking the best features of the Samsung Galaxy S, and tagging on a new name for a different market, T-Mobile's getting ready to launch their next superphone.

Samsung Epic 4G Official for Sprint

One might imagine that this had come out of left field, but if you'll recall, we've actually seen this phone before. It broke cover thanks to a tipster, and while we had originally put the moniker Galaxy S Pro on it, obviously Sprint and Samsung had a different agenda. Courtesy of Sprint, we've got official word that the Samsung Epic 4G (have to love the new trend, right?) is indeed coming "soon," and it's packing quite a mean punch.

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.
