Samsung Captivate gets early release from some AT&T stores
With AT&T's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S not expected to be launched until Sunday, some of the carrier's stores are letting the phone go a little early. Thursday's launch of T-Mobile's Galaxy S phone-the Samsung Vibrant-might have pressured AT&T a little and made the operator feel that there was no reason to hold back until Sunday. It also could be a welcome diversion for AT&T reps who have had to keep up with the latest iPhone 4 news and continually pass along denials to potential customers. Unlike the Apple touchscreen device, Samsung's Galaxy S series has enjoyed a controversy free life so far. As we reported, Samsung has sold 1,000,000 units overseas according to the Korean based manufacturer who expects 10 million units to be sold eventually. AT&T is asking $199.99 for the Captivate with a signed 2-year contract which seems to be the standard price these days for a high-end Android device. It also is the same price for a 16GB Apple iPhone 4. Nothing like an in-house Civil War to get the blood going. If you're an AT&T customer ready for a new phone, you have some tough thinking to do which is why you should read our comparison review of the Samsung Captivate vs. the Apple iPhone 4. Hot off the presses, it might help you decide which handset you want between the two. It's so fresh that the ink has not yet dried.
