• Samsung Captivate

    A friend at work and I were talking about the Samsung Captivate vs. his Nexus One on T-Mobile. I mentioned how AT&T blocks installing any applications that are not in the official Android Market. His reply: “This is just another instance of AT&T cuddling their customers to death with a lack of options and free will.”

    I am playing around with this Android phone to get familiar with with the Google side of phones. I have owned an iPhone since the 3G and have been interested in Android for a while.

    I have installed some of my common applications and my sim card and the testing has begun. I guess the first question is to root or not to root? Especially since at&t has blocked apps not in the official marketplace which rules out swype which is an amazing application for text entry.

    The keyboard seems to be missing my voice entry as well. Time to customize this beast.

    Edit: I have found swype and the android keyboard in the settings menu.
