Even for the bundled price of $300 you could easily get an actual laptop.
$500 for the accessory by itself is simply ridiculous.

Thanks for the replies.

So you can use a program like appInstaller to install apks you downloaded off of your computer, then transferred to your SD card, instead of going through the marketplace?

if you have the apk on your computer
all you if have to do is use droid explorer (program for you pc, not an app for your phone) and that sideloads the apps to your phone

Froyo for the Captivate is done. Samsung has put it out there. The carriers aren't letting it be released. There is a reason the International version has been running froyo for months now. There are even leaked builds of the Captivate froyo that is release stable.

I'm on the same boat as OP, don't know whether to get the Atrix or wait for another phone.
Yes you can. I did it on my AT&T captivate before roms came out that got around that restriction.

This is an OS feature, unlike in iOS. You can even install a 3rd party APK installer and it won't work. (That means if Apple had competent engineers they could stop jailbreaking, since even if you do manage to find an exploit that allows you to run external code, the OS will shut down any attempt to install apps. You'd need to find an exploit in the security in addition to the exploit that let you execute code)

Without root there is no way to modify the database file where the setting is.
That's not entirely true. The sideloading maching he's talking about basically is a batch file that runs ADB install commands. AT&T does not (can not?) block this so the machine he's asking about does work. You cannot install straight from the SD card though, without root. You are completely correct in that. Sadly.

...
When they start releasing the dual-core smartphones in end of spring beginning of summer the samsung orion platform will be the cream of the crop for awhile. It's hardware is undeniable! lol
There will not likely be any HTC SAMOLED phones. Samsung (makers of SAMOLED) just don't seem to be shipping to third parties, at least not in the necessary bulk.

As for the Orion core, it will probably be faster, but as of now, we have no real way to know for sure. I'd actually rather Tegra 2. Reference hardware for easy hacking.

E-Fuse is a hardware limitation. There is a physical chip or something on the OMAP SoC that enables E-Fuse. Motorola will likely just put some incredibly high security boot loader on it like they did with the milestone (2048 bit?). At least, that's my understanding of E-Fuse.

Never used app installer, but you can ADB install, and there are several programs that basically do it for you. Android Central Side Loading Wonder Maching (real name) is a good one.
