AT&T to launch Samsung Focus on November 8th
It was just yesterday that several Windows Phone 7 devices were announced for multiple networks around the globe. Now we are starting to hear some launch dates, as the first Windows Phone 7 device for AT&T will be the Samsung Focus, due to launch on November 8th.

This device is the American version of the Samsung Omnia 7 that will land overseas. If you could take the Samsung Captivate on AT&T and throw the newest Windows platform on it, you would essentially have the Samsung Focus. It features the same gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording capabilities, and a powerful Qualcomm 1 GHz Snapdragon processor.

The Captivate (and the other Galaxy S phones) used Samsung’s Hummingbird processor, so it is unclear as to why they opted to go with the Snapdragon chipset. But either way with this phone launching on November 8th, it is only a matter of time until we all get to play with it.

This appears to be a fantastic device and I would purchase it in a heartbeat if it weren't for one thing; an 8250 Snapdragon processor? WTH? Not that a 1ghz processor is anything to scoff at, but come on, this processor is a first gen. Snapdragon that was released in late 2008! This would also mean that the GPU would be the Adreno 200 which if I understand correctly, has only a fraction of be processing power of the SGX535 found in the iPhone 3GS for example. The Captivate running Samsung's Hummingbird has the SGX540 GPU which out performs even the iPhone 4. The fact that Samsung would use such an antiquated processor/gpu in a device with so much potential, running such a highly anticipated spanking new OS, is just mind boggling and for me a real deal breaker.
