New Android smartphone for AT&T is here. The Samsung Captivate, a Galaxy S line smartphone, is now sharing some shelf space with the iPhone 4 and HTC Aria over at AT&T. It features a contrast-rich Super AMOLED display and runs Android 2.1 while being powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor. If you’ve been looking for an alternative to the iPhone on AT&T’s network, but the Motorola Backflip or HTC Aria just weren’t cutting it as far as Android goes, there is a lot to be happy about with the Samsung Captivate.
The Captive has stunning 4-inch display, here more features:
* GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
* 3G UMTS/HSDPA (850/900/1900/2100 MHz)
* Super AMOLED 4” touchscreen display – improved off-axis viewing and better outdoor visibility
* Entertainment galore with six-axis motion sensor and 3D graphics engine and surround-sound audio
* Android 2.1 (this will probably become Android 2.2 Froyo soon)
* Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0
* Google Mobile Services (Android Market, Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, Google Talk, YouTube)
* Integrated social networking tools – one place for status updates
* 3.5mm headset jack
* 5MP camera with HD video recording
* 1GHz processor
* 16 GB on-board memory for photos, videos, and music–expandable memory up to 32 GB
* MicroSD card support
* Cellular data is provided by HSPA 7.2, which is as fast as AT&T’s network goes right now anyway.
