    The Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T was running Android 2.2 Froyo out-of-the box and last time we heard, the carrier and the manufacturer put the official Gingerbread update on hold at the beginning of February. However, the Android 2.3.6 update is available for installation with version UCLB3 (it was about time). You'll have to apply the refresh through Samsung's own KIES software but that shouldn't stop you. Here's what you get aside from a platform version bump: - Improved Copy and Paste functionality - Redesigned Multi Touch Software Keyboard - Download manager for long running HTTP ...

    An Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread update was available for the AT&T Samsung Infuse 4G at the beginning of the month but it looks like you won't be getting it in the next couple of days if you missed out on it. According to Samsung the update is currently on hold. The manufacturer and the carrier "are aware there is an issue with the Infuse 4G update that affects a small number of users". When will it go live? Whenever the fix, currently in development, will be ready. Our advice to you is to refrain from updating your device with the previous refresh even if you manage to find it somewhere else. ...

    The Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T met its Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread update four months ago but now the carrier is preparing to roll out the next minor version of Android which is Gingerbread 2.3.6. The roll-out process is starting as of February 1 and you might not get in instantly (as the process is reaching your phone). You might want to manually check for the refresh which brings improved copy and paste functionality, redesigned multi-touch keyboard, download manager for long running HTTP downloads, improved power management and application control, notification Shade for "Flight Mode", new ...

    The Samsung-made AT&T Infuse 4G was supposed to get its Gingerbread treat since mid-August but so far there was only word of a maintenance update -- rumored to be a pre-Gingerbread update. An Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread ROM has been leaked for the device and it is build I997UCKI4. It might be a good indication that the official update is not far out but if you just can't wait for it to be pushed to your phone, give the leak a try (but insert unofficial ROM update warning here).

    It's hardly as exciting as when a phone gets a significant OS update, but those little maintenance updates that trickle out between major releases help keep our phones running at peak performance. Two such underdogs are on their way to Android devices as we speak: one to the Motorola Photon 4G on Sprint, and another to Samsung's Infuse 4G on AT&T. The Photon 4G is heading up to software release 4.5.1A-1_SUN-154_6, mentioning only changes to WiFi functionality in its release notes. Users who have received the update have noticed some performance gains; at least we know it doesn't make ...

    It's a shame that the majority of new smartphones lack a dedicated camera key. It's awkward to use the on-screen shutter control, especially in situations where steadying the camera is required to take a clear photo (like when taking a macro shot). With a bit of software tweaking, developers have come up with ways to assign the shutter function to existing hardware buttons. In some cases, the volume up/down rocker is used. As in the case of this mod for the AT&T Samsung Infuse 4G, the power button is utilized to take on this function. Over at XDA, user Frooty has posted an easy-to-install ...

    The AT&T Infuse 4G is a great phone but unfortunately comes with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box, unlike its Canadian cousin which ships with Gingerbread (and the source code for that has already been published, by the way). According to AT&T on Twitter, the Samsung Infuse 4G will get its Gingerbread treat this month. The phone has already been included in the "to do" post for Gingerbread updates by the carrier and it looks like AT&T has a tad more than two weeks to deliver or people will start going for the Galaxy S II variants everyone is expecting.

    The Samsung Infuse on AT&T is running Android Froyo with the manufacturer releasing the 2.2 source code bits back in May, but the Samsung Infuse 4G up north in Canada is shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. If you go to the Samsung Open Source Release Center and search for i997 (the codename for the AT&T Infuse 4G) or i997R (the codename for the Canadian Rogers Infuse 4G, mocked-up above), you'll see the later listed as being available. Given that it's most probably Android 2.3 Gingerbread shipping on the Rogers variant, you can take a peek under the hood if you know your way around ...

    If you're looking to pick up an Android on AT&T that's running Gingerbread, your options are pretty limited; you've got the HTC Status, Motorola's Atrix is getting its update currently, and now the carrier has access to Samsung's Nexus S. That's progress, sure, but we're in the second half of 2011, where the coming approach of Ice Cream Sandwich is nearer to us in time than last year's release of Gingerbread. If you've been stressing over if your Android will ever be getting an update of its own, the carrier is speaking up with some assurances, letting subscribers know that all the ...

    Here's another interesting bit to think about over the weekend! Another episode of the Apple-Samsung lawsuit saga, following up on the recent events where Samsung asked the U.S. International Trade Commission to ban iPhone imports to the States (together with the iPad). As in table tennis or ping-pong, here comes the strike back with the ball in the face! Apple has filed a motion with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California for a preliminary injunction. Cupertino asks for a preliminary ban on three of Samsung's most popular current Android smartphones in the U.S.: ...

    Earlier this year Apple considered that Samsung is ripping it off by copying its iPhone design and applying it to a couple of its own smartphones. Cupertino claimed to take a look at Samsung's upcoming models and the Korean company instantly responded demanding the same, plus adding in a couple of patents to raise the stakes. If the original complaint referred to designs of the Samsung Captivate, Continuum, Vibrant, Galaxy S 4G, Epic 4G, Indulge, Mesmerize, Showcase, Fascinate, Nexus S, Gem, Transform, Intercept, and Acclaim smartphones, Apple has amended it to add an additional eleven ...

    Samsung's Infuse 4G landed last month on AT&T, impressing us with its large 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display and its slender, lightweight construction. While Samsung did a nice job setting up the smartphone with its Touch Wiz UI, it's still only running Android 2.2. Gingerbread may be coming soon to the Infuse, though, as Samsung Canada's website is teasing its coming launch of the smartphone with the news that it will arrive running Android 2.3. The Infuse is set to show up in the Great White North sometime this summer. Chances are good that, if it doesn't even arrive well in advance, a ...

    Last year the Samsung Galaxy S devices were a pretty big deal. These phones all had great Super AMOLED screens that outshined pretty much everything else in terms of contrast and power consumption. While the Samsung Infuse 4G doesn't include Samsung's "Galaxy S" branding anywhere, it certainly feels like part of that family. The Infuse 4G is AT&T's latest and greatest Android smartphone, and the big deal about this one is its huge 4.5" screen. This is the largest Super AMOLED screen we've ever seen, and it looks pretty good. Is this extra large device worth buying pants with really large ...

    AT&T and Samsung have announced the Infuse 4G at the beginning of May when we had an initial hands-on with the smartphone -- since then we already did an unboxing, hardware tour and software tour so stay tuned for the upcoming full review -- and it now released the source code. If you go to the Samsung Open Source Release Center and search for the model number of the Infuse 4G which is SGH-i997 you'll be glad to see the SGH-I997_OpenSource.zip file. If you want to take a peek inside or you know your way around sources, you can download and play with it as source codes are always welcome ...

    This video goes over some of the interesting added customizations and software bundles that we'll find in the Infuse 4G. There are some additions and changes to Samsung's Touch Wiz interface. The "Slide to Unlock" text that used to be on the lock screen (in order to indicate to the user what he/she should do) is gone, but the sliding motion is not as restrictive as the Samsung Galaxy 4G, but more restrictive against accidental unlocks than the Samsung Vibrant. There have been other subtle design change's to Samsung's UI including the loss of the rounded big blue gradient tabs in most ...
