Howdy folks! Just picked up a Galaxy S (aka, AT&T Captivate) this morning, figured I'd share a few misc ramblings. So far it's outstanding! The display is amazing, the color, contrast, and text is stellar. I've coming from a Tilt/8925 (WM6.5), but we also have an iPhone 3G in the house. I had semi-considered upgrading to an iPhone 4, but I wanted something different, something more open vs. more of the same. I'm not much of a fan of the Apple ecosystem and I despise iTunes - I used Anapod and Media Monkey to sync up our old school iPod 80GB Classic just to avoid it. The file/media management for the Wifey's iPhone is a major bummer. So far (with the exception of a couple of bugs I'll work out) it has exceeded my expectations. It's extremely fast, the amazing display, Android is stellar and lets me manage my files/media the way I prefer. The SuperAMOLED I just can't get over - the color/contrast (I did a little comparo vs. some DLSR source files and the preproduction is excellent). I'm also amazed at the off angle viewing - I mean you can almost go perpendicular! I shot some video, looks great, shot a few pics of a little BooBoo and it correctly captured her overwhelming cuteness. I installed the USB drivers and Kies app, so I was easily able to sync up my Outlook contracts and calendar. I also dropped on the update.zip and had the phone 'rooted' in about 45 seconds Thanks to the original poster for that, it should simplify a couple of things for me. The GPS worked really well first time, I'd say I had sat lock in ~30-35 seconds and was zoomed into my street pretty quickly. On a side note, I've got a couple of major applications that I'm looking at adding a mobile component to, and I'm thinking Android might be perfect. I did a pretty decent amount of Java years ago (client and J2EE server framework), and I've been plinking around with the SDK for a couple of weeks. My only two issues, and one resolved itself: 1) The port field for the inbound email was limited to 3 numbers and we're on a 4-digit port. I wound up letting it auto-config, and it seems to be working fine. It's possible my mail provider is using the standard port again so it was able to configure itself just fine. 2) I was originally able to see the WiFi network, set the phone to WPA2, and get an IP, though I wasn't able to access anything outside the local network. Now when I turn on the WiFi, I get an 'unable to scan networks' message and no WiFi access at all. I did a complete hard reset and it seemed to come back, but after a couple of attempts to connect, I'm once again getting that message. That's all for now, I'll report back in as I get more familiar and get more thinks tweaked!
