Back in June we saw Android 2.3.3 leak for the Samsung Captivate and the leaks just keep on coming. This time we have an official leaked build of Android 2.3.4 for the Cappy courtesy of Przekret over on XDA. I’m not going to tell you how to flash this (Odin) or even recommend that you […]

Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread Leaks for the Samsung Captivate

Though no official word has gone out on the status of the Gingerbread update for the US lineup of Galaxy S phones, a leak of not one, but two builds of the Android 2.3.3 firmware for the Samsung Captivate suggests it might not be far off. Build number UCKE3 and UCKF1 are dated May 26th […]

CyanogenMod 7 comes to a handful of new Samsung devices

The CyanogenMod family of devices is continuing to grow, with this week seeing official support of its first Samsung device, AT&T’s Captivate. But that wasn’t the only Sammy phone to gain the privilege. Also added to the ranks were the Samsung Galaxy S, Vibrant, and Nexus S 4G. ROMs for these phones haven’t reached official […]

AT&T Issuing Updates to Select Android Phones to Enable Sideloading

It’s time. Time for AT&T to give you a bit more freedom over your Android smartphone, that is. It’s been leaked that they’ll begin issuing updates to select Android handsets – including the HTC Aria and Inspire 4G and the Samsung Captivate – that’ll allow users to sideload applications. (IE, install applications from sources outside […]

Radio Shack Offering Some Decent Discounts on AT&T Devices May 1st

If you’re looking to pick up the HTC EVO 4G, the HTC Inspire 4G, or the Motorola Atrix 4G soon, consider what Radio Shack has to offer. The EVO 4G can be had for $200 but only after trading in your own device for a guaranteed $50 store credit. Two high-end Androids from AT&T are […]

Samsung Captivate Gets Direct AT&T Billing For Media Hub Purchases

Part of the reason making mobile purchases from your phone haven’t quite taken of yet is because, well… it’s a pain. You’ve got to fill in your credit card information, add this information, verify your e-mail address and whatever else. The promise of NFC is encouraging but its real-world integrations are currently limited. Samsung Captivate […]

Samsung Captivate Froyo Upgrade Should Now Be Available

The Epic 4G got its Froyo upgrade starting Monday (though it’s since been pulled), and now Samsung and AT&T are rolling the upgrade to Android 2.2 out for their Galaxy S phone, the Samsung Captivate. You’ll need Mini Kies to grab it – no OTA here – but Samsung has posted rather clear instructions to […]

Word also come by way of […]

KB1 Froyo Build for the Samsung Captivate Leaks

If I am recalling correctly, the Samsung Vibrant and Samsung EPIC 4G are thus far the only US Galaxy S phones to receive their update to Android 2.2. The Samsung Captivate has had its fair share of hopeful moments, too, such as an update page that went live but was quickly pulled after word got […]

What’s This? AT&T Showing Froyo on the Captivate Right Under Our Noses

Adding insult to injury, if you head over to AT&T’s support page for the Samsung Captivate and look at the how-to for finding your OS and firmware versions you might notice that the phone they are using as an example features Android 2.2. I’m not going to beat a dead horse explaining how notorious Samsung […]

It’s a Little Late, but Froyo is Available for Captivate Owners on Rogers

Back in November, Samsung gave us a timeline for the upgrade to Android 2.2 for the Canadian versions of their handsets. Then, they said mid-December would be its supposed landing date, but urged folks not to get too excited as that date could easily be pushed back. It was. And now it’s January 11th, and […]

Samsung on Galaxy S Gingerbread Possibility: Maybe, but Maybe Not

The first question that came to everyone’s mind when Gingerbread was finally announced a couple of days ago was “will Samsung be delivering it to users of their flagship smartphone?” And the skepticism and need to even ask this question is understandable: a lot of us haven’t even gotten Froyo yet. And there’s no clear […]

Samsung Sold More Android Smartphones in Q3 than Anyone in America

Samsung’s finally atop the Android totem pole (at least here in the states) as they’ve just announced that Gartner’s Q3 research shows them as the number 1 provider of Android smartphones in the United States.
