AT&T Samsung Captivate

AT&T announced today that the Samsung Captivate (see our hands-on) -- one of the four Galaxy S-class phones announced last week -- will be available July 18 for $199 after contract. You'll need a minimum $15 data plan, which should just about cover everybody, right? [@samsungmobileus]

I'm really looking forward to this. I have had great luck with Samsung phones on AT&T in the past.

frozencloud says:

i wonder how this will go since the droid x comes out like 3 days before the captivate is available

TheChefSLC says:

only downfall is that I have to wait another 10 days to get it! i want it now lol

Should I buy this on the 18th or wait for all the technical issues to be resolved??

With Sammy releasing essentially the same phone on four carriers no wonder there is a shortage of OLED screens. Sammy's hogging them all for their line of phones.... and I'm not mad! LOL I can't wait for the Epic to land on Sprint; hopefully sometime this month. I'm keeping my fingers crossed

I love my N1 but that's one sweet looking phone.

Fixintu says:

WHERE will it be available on Sunday the 18th? Online only through the AT&T website? Will Best Buy stores have any on hand on the 18th?

bsinc1962 - AT&T said it will be available in stores and online, I'm not sure about Best Buy though.
