After 85 days as “Coming Soon” the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate is finally available at Rogers. This was announced the same day a Bell launched their Galaxy S Vibrant on August 4th. Alas, it’s here and the Android device can finally be purchased. The price rage from a 3-year contract price of $179.99 (or $149.99 if you are eligible for a HUP until November 2nd) to $549.99 no-contract.
This has been confirmed by Rogers to be upgraded to OS 2.2 “early 2011” but Samsung recently stated that all Galaxy S devices will be upgraded to OS 2.2 sometime in November. As for specs of the Captivate: has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display (480 x 800 resolution), 1Ghz processor, 5 megapixel camera that can records 720p HD videos, Swype texting, Samung’s Social Hub, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth,3.5 mm audio jack, has internal storage of 16GB and holds up to 32GB with a microSD support.
You can bet this will sell out fast as there is a “limited supply of inventory” being shipped.
Best to call Rogers directly as it’s not available online yet: 1-888-764-3771… apparently when you call the Call Centre you can get this for $499.99 no-term
