AT&T set to expand its Android lineup

It looks as though AT&T is slowly starting to come around with Android-based smartphones. Earlier this week, we told you about the budget-friendly HTC Aria that is coming to AT&T with a price tag of $129 with a two-year contract.

Today, AT&T is announcing another smartphone based on Android 2.1: the Samsung Captivate. The Captivate features a generous 4" Super AMOLED WVGA touch screen, 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, 16GB of internal memory, 5MP camera, 720p video capture, 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0, and HSPA 7.2Mbps connectivity.

”Add up Captivate’s amazing screen, huge amounts of onboard storage, a super-fast processor, all fueled by the nation’s fastest 3G network and a nationwide  Wi-Fi network and you get a smartphone we know our customers will crave,” said Jeff Bradley, AT&T Mobility Senior VP of Devices.

“The Captivate represents a new breed of smartphone that will truly change and enrich the way consumers interact with their device on an everyday basis.” 

AT&T won't give any firm availability or pricing information on the Captivate other than to say that it will be released within the "coming months at AT&T retail locations."

Boy Genius Report states that the Captivate is coming to AT&T July 18 with a price tag of $199 for a two-year contract.

Droid is a product line for Verizon for all their Android phones, it does not exist outside of Verizon. If other carriers sell the same phone, its called something else.. (Ex the Droid is called the Moto Milestone everyone else)

Its also not really 'Droid' being fragmented, its Verizon being fragmented, updates are up to them, not the manufacturer.

Lastly Manufacturers don't make Droid phones, they are merely OEM's that are selling phones to Verizon. I.e its not like 'Dell competes against HP, Gateway, and Sony' Its more like an OEM (such as say Intel/ Nvidia/ etc..) supplying a parts to computer makers such as 'Dell , HP, Gateway, and Sony.

The only difference being, they are usually exclusives within the US in Verizons case..
