Samsung i897 is Now “Captivate”

The guys over at BGR are reporting this afternoon that the Samsung i897 will be known as the Captivate. We were the first to bring you pictures of the device late last week. Looking nearly identical to the Galaxy S on the inside, it has a slightly varied form factor on the outside. Specs include a 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, Android 2.1 and Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 interface.

    Nowhere near the same as the Galaxy S on the inside. This phone does not have the Hummingbird Chipset nor is it DLNA certified. ATT gets the gimpy version thanks to Steve Job's not wanting the Galaxy S to show up his iPhone.

      A quick search of the DLNA website ( shows that the Samsung I897 is DLNA certified. All hope is not lost yet.

    Why does every shitbird alive find it necessary to bang on AT&T at every turn? This phone is a very positive thing for Android fans who rely on AT&T, and there is just no denying that. This phone is proof enough that Steve Jobs does NOT run AT&T.
