They are the same phones, just rebranded.

Albo listen... They are basically the same phones just a few differences between them for each carrier. Here are the major differences...


The only thing I wish the Vibrant had is the flash for the camera. Even the original Samsung Galaxy S didn't come with one though so Verizon and Sprint had them add it on.

I'm going to pick my Vibrant up at the store tomorrow morning.

And another question, will the Captivate have the ability to install unofficial apps? I know that AT&T removed this ability from the HTC Aria, do you think they will remove it with the Captivate?

I'll have to check out the Verizon variant when it launches. VZW has so many nice phones coming out it's going to be hard to choose. My ally is just too slow.

Well I got my Vibrant phone today

The T-Mobile store wanted $250 then send in a rebate to get $50 back. Umm no. I showed them Wirefly had them for $189 (I was adding another line to my wife's account then changing to the family plan) and they honored it.
This phone is amazing.

Well I'm at work letting it charge and we have been busy so I haven't had much time to play with it.
I can say the screen really is incredible like everyone has been saying. Not only is it beautiful to look at but the sensitivity and smoothness of the touch screen is wonderful. My wife is going to be so jealous of it when I get home
I love how you can change fonts for the phone too. I think I read this was a first on an Android phone. The live wallpaper with the water ripples that move when you touch it is cool as hell.
The camera and camcorder take very nice pictures even in not so bright surroundings especially since it doesn't have a flash. I'll try and post some up later.
More to post when I can really play with it...
