Rogers in Canada has a great message for you Galaxy S fans to wake up to this morning: the Samsung Captivate will be launching next week. The news comes to us via the company’s blog where I’m sure they’re just as excited as you are to get this thing out here. The phone’s launch was originally delayed due to manufacturing issues, and – at the time – no one knew how long it’d take to overcome the problems. Thankfully, they’ve worked quickly and a release finally looms.
You’ll be able to grab the Samsung Captivate for $149.99 on a three-year contract and $549.99 if you just want to buy it outright. The phone ships with Android 2.1, but they’ve already set a timeline for the upgrade to Android 2.2. You can expect that to head your way early 2011.
