Samsung Infuse 4G hits AT&T May 15 for $200

While it is no Samsung Galaxy S II, today Samsung has announced that the Samsung Infuse 4G Android superphone is coming to AT&T on May 15th for $200, with a two-year contract. Unlike AT&T's other "4G" devices such as the Motorola Atrix 4G, the Infuse 4G is the first that supports HSDPA Category 14, which will provide downstream speeds of up to 21 Mbps over AT&T's network.

The Infuse 4G also packs the largest display of any smartphone on the market, with a huge 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen display. Due to the immense size of the device, Samsung has managed to slim it down to just 8.9mm at the thinnest point, while still managing to pack a 1.2 GHz Hummingbird processor (single-core), 8 MP rear camera with 720p video support and a 1.3 MP front facing camera.

According to Android Central, Samsung and AT&T have a treat for Angry Birds fans, as the Infuse 4G will come with a pre-loaded version that features an exclusive hidden level especially for Infuse 4G buyers. It also appears as though the device will be loaded with Samsung's TouchWiz UI from the Galaxy S 1 & 2, with Samsung providing $25 credit with the device to purchase content from the included Media Hub.

The Samsung Infuse 4G is just one of the 20 4G devices AT&T promised to deliver in 2011, with several more coming throughout the rest of the year.

I got my Atrix a couple of days ago. Love it. I did a speed test, after the updates with the speedtest app. Pulled 2 down 1 up. I'm happy.

Using my MyTouch 3G Slide on T-Mobile here in Atlanta, I'm getting 6.5M down/2.1M up and it isn't even a + phone, so your speeds aren't that amazing... well, maybe amazing for AT&T. ;-)

Considering my speeds with my iphone 3g... this was a HUGE improvement.

I can't believe those speeds. 21 Mbps download and I'm stuck with a max of 6.0 dsl with At&t at home.

The speed mentioned is very much best conditions scenario rather than real world.

They should put " around the "4G" in all these articles.
Yup. It's all marketing. Wait, it's going to get better. Since they're not at a "true" 4G now, they'll probably call it 5G when they hit actual 4G specs. Then 6G when they're really somewhere between 4G & 5G, and on and on and on....

Finally! We are starting to see some new Android phones hit AT&T. This is what I have been asking and waiting for. I am through with Windows Phones and moving on.

Take it. AT&T sucks. Sorry but I hate their service. I've had service problems in the past so I bailed. Now I have many friends and clients on AT&T and it's frustrating to try to talk to them with their stupid AT&T phones dropping calls all the time. Maybe it's just my area (Chicago). Thanks but no thanks.

He said Windows Phones, there were other windows OS phones before WP7

But it is more likely he is referring to something in the contemporary sense such as Windows Phone considering he referred to it as Windows Phones rather than Windows Mobile. Anyway we can both play the waiting game for him to clarify what he said (but I doubt he will though).
