Captivate Launches to Complete New Android Threesome

AT&T launched the Captivate (below), its Samsung Galaxy S variant, on Sunday, as scheduled. With that, it was the third launch of a hot Android device since Thursday.  Indeed, Thursday was a day with a twin set of Android device launches.  On Thursday, Verizon launched the Motorola Droid X, while T-Mobile simultaneously launched the Vibrant, its own Samsung Galaxy S variant.

Both the Captivate and Vibrant (below) have 16GB of internal storage, and use a Samsung Hummingbird CPU, along with a Super AMOLED screen. Neither of them has a front-facing camera or an LED flash, however. Additionally, the Captivate is saddled with AT&T's restriction against sideloading apps (installing apps that aren't in the Android Market is blocked period; there is no setting on the device to allow such installs).

Verizon is expected to release the Fascinate, its own Galaxy S variant, later this year, while Sprint will release the Epic 4G, a 4G version with a hardware keyboard. Both will have LED flash, while the Epic 4G will have a front-facing camera. The Fascinate will have 2GB of internal storage, while the Epic 4G has 1GB.

The Motorola Droid X (above) was widely anticipated, and has already sold out. The device carries 8GB of internal storage, along with a TI OMAP CPU. Motorola has seen fit to lock down the bootloader, however, which will probably make custom ROMs a non-starter, although rooting is still expected.

It has been one heck of a set of four days for Android device lovers.

Personally. I like the design of the Captivate better then the design of the Vibrant, it just appeals to me more.
