• Samsung Captivate
    Last Updated: Nov 16th,2010

     The Samsung Captivate is AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy S, marking Samsung's first strong push into high-end Android territory. The manufacturer simultaneously launched the Galaxy S on every major American carrier, each retaining their own branded-name and with subtle design and spec differences.

    The Captivate has an incredibly bright 4-inch Super AmoLED screen, 5MP camera (no flash), has 16GB of onboard memory, and is powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor. Swype comes pre-installed on the Captivate, and if you're not familiar with Swype you should give it a try, it's an innovative keyboard that provides a fun alternative when typing on your touchscreen.

    Of course the Captivate comes with smartphone essentials such as Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth.
