AT&T's Biggest (and Thinnest and Fastest) Phone [Smartphones]


AT&T's Biggest (and Thinnest and Fastest) PhoneThe Infuse 4G doesn't feel quite as spectacular as I remember at CES—it's missing that feeling of heft, that feeling of quality construction, subbing in a less dense plastic—but the 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen is still a rich-hued stunner, and its 8.99mm of thinness effectively camouflages the serious size of the phone, which inches (literally) into mini-tablet territory.

It's all still powered by a single-core 1.2GHz processor, with an 8MP rear and 1.3MP front camera. The 4G on here is, um, more 4Ger than AT&T's other "4G" phones, with 21Mbps on the downstream, and HSUPA enabled from the get go, unlike the Atrix. On the downside, it's still running Android 2.2 with the older version of TouchWiz, same as the current Galaxy S variant on AT&T, the Captivate. But this thing massive thing's out May 15 for $200 w/ contract.

Expect more hands on time with this later. [AT&T]
