Rogers will be releasing the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate someday… hopefully soon. Thanks to our friends over at Best Buy for informing/confirming the no-contract price to be $549.99. The 3-year contract price of $149.99 was already known via the pre-order. Best Buy states that “This product is not available for shipping” but it will be soon. Specs of the Captivate have this coming with a 4-inch AMOLED display, Android OS 2.1, 1GHZ processor, 5 megapixel camera, 16GB of internal memory and can hold up to 32GB with a microSD card, Wi-Fi… will you be getting one?

    $549.99? Really? Bell had Galaxy S out for how many months now? And the no-contract price for the Vibrant is $500. Shame on you Rogers.

    Rogers can’t provide a lunch date yet?? Maybe november…

  • Ian

    I’m torn as to whether to line up and wait or do wait a couple weeks for the deep discounts (and possibly supply issues.)

    Hmm… the Desire Z has a keyboard and a faster proc for 499, and it will probably be out sooner… decisions decisions…

    • zorxd

      Completely false. The Desire Z has a slower CPU.

    • Sam

      Desire Z 800Mhz
      Galaxy S 1000Mhz…How do you figure that the desire z is faster?

  • JSKershaw

    We must be getting closer to a release by now…? Maybe October 21st will be the date… Let’s hope.

    The marketing/PR dept at Rogers are completely inept. The misinformation being delivered by phone ops and CSR’s as well as Redboard has been nothing shy of a Joke. Wait until the competition takes hold all those people will be looing for jobs.

  • Shaki Shabazz

    The marketing fail of the Captivate is just exposing the lack of communication between all Rogers fronts. Their lack of communication with consumers helps expose that. Boo Rogers.

    The only reason this was done was to keep the promise of the release date being in Mid-October. Now Best Buy has it on their site. They are off the hook.

    Of course when the shipping date is, that is another story….
