About one month ago I purchased the new Samsung Captivate Galaxy S phone from AT&T. Having switched from a Windows Mobile 6.1 phone, I feel like I rose out of the fires of Hell into Heaven’s cloudy embrace. Since I have been a linux user for 12 years, the learning curve was negligible. I promptly rooted the phone after 2 days of playing with it to allow me the freedom Android intended. The high points are an amazing Super AMOLED screen with decent battery life, as long as you don’t browse for 3 hours straight, and the ability to connect to almost every social media outlet you can imagine. It is admittedly thin and light but I don’t find that a negative. I just purchased a Body Glove rubberized case which seems to make all the difference in holding onto it. I love all the apps specifally Seesmic, Mustard, Talking Tom and many many others. Oh yeah I also love the phone too. It is an excellent update from my old WinMo phone which was insanely long in the tooth. Great job Samsung and kudos to AT&T for finally offering a worthy Android competitor to the iPhone.
