This morning, AT&T announced that the Samsung Captivate (aka Galaxy S i9000) would go on sale July 18th at a new contract or upgrade price of $199.

There does not appear to be a pre-order option, so you anxious AT&T users will likely have to get to your local AT&T store July 18th to pick up your device if you want it on release day. Read More

If reports of an Asian release date in June are accurate, this probably means that you’ll be able to get your hands on the Galaxy S in the next few weeks, regardless of whereabouts in the world you are. Read More
We’ve already heard quite a bit about Samsung’s flagship Android device, the Galaxy S, but a definitive release date was never given to us. Until now.
CNET are reporting today that the smartphone will be available in Asia from June, which means that it could be arriving in just a week from now. Those wanting to buy it unsubsidized will have to pay a whopping S$1,098, which is quite steep considering that the HTC Desire is on the market for just S$898. Read More
