Key Differences

  • Background: If the Samsung Focus, Fascinate and Captivate seem a little similar, there is definitely a family resemblence under their pretty four-inch Super AMOLED faces. They are made by Samsung (obviously), use the same display technology and have 1 GHz processers. The Fascinate (Verizon Wireless) and Captivate (AT&T Wireless) are two of Samsung’s well-received “Galaxy S” line of Android smart phones, while the Focus will be among the first of the eagerly awaited Windows Phone 7 devices to reach the market. The Focus will operate on AT&T’s network alongside the Captivate. The big difference among these phones is in their operating systems: The Fascinate and Captivate use Android 2.1 (with a promised upgrade to Android 2.2) and the Focus uses Windows Phone 7.
  • Operating System: The Fascinate and Captivate run on Android, a graphical interface developed by Google that has a growing following by consumers. Google developed Android to be open and easy for developers to create new applications, and there is a large market of free or low-cost apps. Windows Phone 7 was developed by Microsoft and it should be considered a proprietary system, much like Apple’s iPhone operating system. All three operating systems — Android, iPhone OS and Windows Phone 7 — are targeting the same users who want highly visual, easy-to-use phones from which they can handle both work and life requirements.
  • Availability: The Samsung Fascinate and Captivate are available for sale now on Wirefly.com. The Samsung Focus starts shipping in early November.
