AT&T Samsung Captivate Glide and Samsung Doubletime get priced ahead of release on Sunday
In just a couple of days, this Sunday, AT&T will release three new Android-powered smartphones. These are the Samsung Captivate Glide, the Samsung Doubletime, and the Pantech Pocket. They were all announced last month and yesterday we found out that the Pantech Pocket will go for $49.99 with a two-year contract.
Which left the question of how much the Samsung devices would cost unanswered. Until now, that is, when thanks to AT&T, we have that information for you.
The Samsung Captivate Glide can be yours starting on Sunday if you agree to part with $149.99 of your hard earned cash – and sign a new two-year contract. The Doubletime is more affordable, only requiring you to shell out $49.99 for the privilege of owning it – again with a two-year contract of course.
The Samsung Captivate Glide would have been AT&T’s flagship Android smartphone just a few months ago. It has a 1 GHz dual-core processor, a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, an 8 MP camera, and a side-sliding physical QWERTY keyboard – which will probably be its main selling point.
The Samsung Doubletime, on the other hand, isn’t even close in terms of specs. It has a 600 MHz CPU and runs the positively ancient by now Android 2.2 – but it has a rather unique dual-screen form factor, which will undoubtedly constitute its main appeal.
