AT&T's First High-End Android Announced: Samsung Captivate

Yesterday AT&T Announced their first high-end Android handset only a couple of days after the announcement of the HTC Aria. The Samsung Captivate appears to share the same internals as the Samsung Galaxys S, but has a different exterior  to set it apart from the Galaxy S for some reason. Ever the question with AT&T these days is if they will keep the phone from installing non-Android Market apps.

I believe that it is safe to assume that AT&T will not be carrying the Samsung Galaxy S after this latest development. As for what version of the phone T-Mobile is likely to get, I'm still holding out for the regular version. I would bet that they receive the same version that the other markets worldwide will receive (especially after writing this article), but maybe we are in for a surprise.

BoyGeniusReport put together a recap of the device's specs:

Powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and running Android 2.1, the Captivate features a 4″ WVGA Super AMOLED display, 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording, 16GB of internal memory and a 7.2Mbps HSDPA radio.

No word on a release date other than their vage statement that the phone is “scheduled for release in the coming months.” Phandroid notes that "this summer is always a good assumption when they mention “the coming months”." Pricing has yet to be announced as well.

Take a look at the official press release from AT&T here.
