Samsung Captivate hits AT&T on July 18th for $199

AT&T will become the second carrier to get their version of the Samsung Galaxy S into stores when they launch the Samsung Captivate on July 18th for $199 with a new 2-year contract. T-Mobile’s Samsung Vibrant will debut on July 15th for the same price and we have yet to learn the launch dates for Sprint’s Epic 4G and the Verizon Fascinate.

    This is a cool phone. I currently have an iphone 2G on At&T and would strongly consider getting this one if not for two things. Samsung… they never update their phone’s software and; AT&T has locked down their android so that you cant install apps from third parties.

    I’m in an AT&T area that shows (or at least used to show) good 3G coverage, yet everyone I know with a 3G AT&T phone has trouble holding a 3G signal. Even my brother in law returned his Nook due to lack of 3G stability and replaced it with a Kindle. (Nook’s use AT&T 3G w/o any 2G fallback, the Kindle uses Sprint and holds a signal just about everywhere around here). Now what about Sprint and the EPIC? …. Surely they don’t want to be the last kid in the pool!

    Does anybody know if this phone has front facing video camera?

    Thank you

      I believe the answer is no and it also doesn’t have a flash for the camera!

    I haven’t needed a flash for pics in three years with my 1st gen iPhone… If I’m taking “serious” pics, i’m using my dslr or my point and shoot…

    Front-facing camera? Europe has had them for years…no big deal. You really want to see everyone you talk to? Or let them see you?

    I can see porn producers buying their web girls iPhones to give “facetime”… Way to go Steve Jobs… Hate on porn and provide them their next tool…

    Hummingbird us sweet though. I’m giving this phone a run. If it’s $350 off-contract, I’m buying it free and clear!

      $ 350 off contract??? LOL..what world are you living in? Just check eBay. Off contract will be at least 450 to 550 for sure.

    Hate AT&Ts version of the Galaxy S. I think it is by far the ugliest of all the Galaxy S phones. Nowonder AT&T wanted it.
    Looks like it’s not sure if its an Android phone, Blackberry, iPhone or car with a fake carbon fiber.. hood
