Media store not ready yet. No voice dialing over Bluetooth. No flash on camera.

Media and Conclusions The Captivate is a terrific media device, and it's only going to get better. The phone ships with a somewhat mysterious stub for Samsung Media Hub, a promised music-and-movie store which will have big-name content when it launches...

Samsung Captivate makes good use of its Android OS

 

For most agencies, the Captivate would be a perfect mobile device because it walks a careful balance between the easy-to-manage BlackBerry and the power and capabilities of the Evo.
