We've just gotten official word that the Captivate
-- AT&T's rendition of Samsung's global Galaxy S
line of high-end Android phones -- will be available starting Sunday, July 18 for $199 on contract with no rebate required. That pricing is more or less what we'd expected considering that T-Mobile priced the Vibrant
the same way -- and if rumors of T-Mobile's launch date bump
are true, the Captivate won't be the first kid on the block. Still, all four US nationals are getting this thing pretty shortly, which is an extremely impressive Android coup for the boys and girls over at Sammy. Stay tuned for a review just as soon as we can make it happen.
