AT&T and Samsung announced a release date of May 15 for the Samsung Infuse, the ultra-thin 4G phone that the Korean manufacturer showed off this past January. The phone will ship with Android 2.2 Froyo.
At its slimmest point, the phone is 3.5 inches (8.99 mm), though it has a slight bulge at the bottom. It also sports a 4.5 inch screen, 1.2 Ghz processor and a rear-facing 8 MP camera.
The Infuse will also be the first AT&T phone to allow apps from outside the Android Market, AT&T’s Jeff Bradley told PCWorld.
That means Infuse users can use Amazon’s Android Market or other mobile app stores and load beta apps from developers.
The phone will cost $199.99 with a two-year contract. A $15 minimum data plan is required for the phone.
To sweeten the deal, AT&T and Samsung throwing in some extras: a $25 voucher for the Samsung Media Hub in for the first 500,000 to buy the 4G phone, an Infuse-only edition of Angry Birds, and preloaded trailers on the phone’s 2GB microSD card.
