Last week, AT&T introduced the Samsung Infuse 4G, the largest smartphone sold directly by the carrier. The handset uses a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, but is surprisingly thin and still fits in a front pants pocket. Infuse 4G also includes the first 21 Mbps radio in an AT&T smartphone, even if the network isn’t quite ready for such speeds. As the carrier expands and improves its mobile broadband infrastructure, the Infuse 4G should benefit with faster uploads and downloads.
In this short video overview, you can get a feel for the size of the device, as I compare it to several other phones, an iPod touch and even a 7-inch tablet. Although the Infuse 4G doesn’t use a dual-core processor like many other new phones, Android 2.2 runs fairly quickly on the 1.2 GHz Samsung chip. Video playback looks phenomenal on the vivid screen as well. I’ll follow up with a full review, but until then, enjoy this quick look at the $199 device.
