Dell Streak vs Samsung Captivate

Streak-vs-cap (1)

Since I know that many of you are on the fence about getting the Dell Streak or the Samsung Captivate that was released today, I put together a quick specs chart and took a bunch of photos comparing the two devices to help you make your decision. You've already seen the Streak alongside the iPhone 4 and HTC EVO 4G, so it's definitely the Captivate's turn to face the device next.

Assuming that the Streak is indeed released in the US with AT&T, it will be competing with the Captivate as the carrier's flagship Android phone (especially if the Streak ships with Android 2.0 or 2.1). AT&T will presumably preload a bunch of non-removable apps that no one wants as well remove the ability to install apps that aren't available in Android Market, putting the Streak in the same undesirable situation as the Captivate.

I haven't had much time to play with the Captivate yet, as I started taking these photos within minutes of unboxing it (AT&T in Hawaii opened at 10 a.m., about 1.5 hours ago as I write this). I'm pleased with what I've seen so far, though, and think the device will impress and satisfy mainstream consumers who don't need or want to sideload apps.

I'll put together some comparison posts if anyone has specific requests, but here are the pics in the meantime.
