Samsung Captivate for AT&T Bigwigs Comes Packaged Pretty Nicely


When you walk into the AT&T store this Sunday to grab your new Samsung Captivate (that’s if you haven’t already been able to do it), you’ll find the norm: a cardboard box, a phone inside, some manuals, unneeded plastic, and the accessories to accompany your shiny new device. If you’re a suit-wearing AT&T higher-up, however, you’ll get one of the most epically-crafted boxes since the introduction of the Ulysse Nardin Chairman‘s.


Being a part of that “good ol’ boys” club gets you a high quality case with a glass cover to see the contents inside without having to open it. Directly underneath that glass (with a gold-plated hinge playing host to the box’s opening and closing mechanism) lies the phone and a shimmering piece of glass with the Captivate and Galaxy S logos on it. Going even further reveals some accessories that you can’t even buy if you wanted to.

Pretty cool stuff. I’ve always been one to hold onto my boxes for expensive technology (you never know when you’ll need it) and this is one box I’d proudly keep around my living or working quarters as it reminds me that I’m making way more money than I should be. Be sure to check out Engadget for their full gallery of images.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I love how the guy is using an Incredible to take the photos. :D

  2. Common practice – VIPs (executives, celebrities, influential people) get promotional packages for most major launches. Obvious reasons – makes them more likely to talk about the device, recommend it to friends, etc.

  3. At least we won’t have to worry about all of those annoying LED flash bursts/reflections in the photos we take with the Captivate ;-)
