AT&T’s First High-End Android Phone– the Samsung Captivate– Coming July 18 for $199.99
Excited for AT&T’s first truly high-end Android phone the Samsung Captivate? You know, the phone with Android 2.1, a 5 megapixel camera, Super AMOLED screen, and that fast Samsung 1 GHZ Hummingbird processor? If so, your wait is nearly over as AT&T and Samsung have today finally thrown out those final missing pieces about the phone– the price and release date. And what is this said pricing and release date? Two Sunday’s from now– July 18th— the Samsung Captivate can be yours for $199.99 with a new 2 year contract and required $15 or $25 data plan ($15 gets you 200 MB a month of data and $25 gets you 2 GB a month of data. If you plan to be watching a ton of YouTube and don’t have constant access to WiFi your better off springing for the $25 a month plan and avoid ever running into those nasty overage charges). Oh, and no mail in rebate is required (which is about time this hassle begins disappearing from when you buy a phone from the actual carrier).
With T-Mobile said to be launching their version of this Galaxy S phone, what they are calling the Samsung Vibrant, on the 15th — the same day Verizon just so happens to get the highly anticipated Motorola Droid X— next week is already shaping up to be a huge week for all things Android.
