AT&T's Samsung Captivate is setting sail for a July 18th release

There's a fresh smell in the air today for AT&T customers who are still starved and waiting to experience another true high-end Android smartphone. Today the carrier let out some exciting news regarding their version of the Samsung Galaxy S, the Samsung Captivate, which is on its way out the door with a July 18th release date. As far as pricing goes for this smartphone that's packing a Super AMOLED display and a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, it's coming in at the usual $199.99 on contract price which can make for an interesting competition for the iPhone 4. This isn't like some of the other Android handsets being sold by AT&T, it also features a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, 720p video recording, 16GB of storage, microSD card slot, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, and TouchWiz UI 3.0 running on top of Android 2.1. It's about time that AT&T step up to the game in bringing out a decent Android handset to market, but it shouldn't be too long before customers will get a chance at snatching this one.
