Samsung Infuse 4G: Installation Of Non-Market Apps Possible

Here at OSM we are big fans of Android, the love of this operating system has had us bringing you hands on experience with the Samsung Galaxy S2. It’s after this that we developed a new love that was the combination of a Samsung Handset running on an Android operating system.

A few days ago Tim Ollason posted details about another handset that shares this great duo of enticing features, this device was the Samsung Infuse 4G which appears to have an added bonus for its users and will allow the installation of non-market apps.

According to a post from George Wong some lucky people who managed to get their hands on this device a little early were playing around with the application settings, upon doing so they discovered that the device has the ability to install apps from unknown sources. This is great news for potential buyers as previous restrictions from AT&T would not allow this, you can read more on this by following this link through to Ubergizmo.

For those not familiar with this handset here is a quick roundup of its specs, the device boasts a supersized 4.5inch super AMOLED display, 8MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 1.2GHz processor and runs on Android 2.2 Froyo. Check out the video below to see the device or to read more on the specs follow this link here to Samsungs news page.

This device when available could be a really popular handset although we feel that maybe due to the non existence of Android Gingerbread people would pick the already popular Samsung Galaxy S2 over the Infuse 4G. What do you think?

Do you think the Infuse 4G will be popular? Or will it be over shadowed by the Galaxy S2?
