Massive Samsung Infuse 4G lands in the US

Massive Samsung Infuse 4G lands in the USOur American chums woke up today with a whole lot more smartphone in their midst as Samsung went official with its Infuse 4G powerhouse.

Aside from a blockbuster specification that should wipe the floor with most rivals, the Infuse also boasts a huge 4.5in display yet still manages to be one of the skinniest Android phones ever made.

We knew that the Infuse 4G was coming – it was first shown off at CES at the start of the year – but it boasts the kind of spec that's no worse off for a second viewing.

A 1.2GHz processor leads the way, and should just about be up to the task of keeping in control of that huge 4.5in Super AMOLED display. An 8-megapixel camera at the back is accompanied by the standard 1.3MP video camera up front, while of course that 4G moniker in its title gives away that the HSPA+ equipped handset is able to make use of those high-speed next-gen networks that have emerged in the US recently.

Surprisingly, it's only Android 2.2 Froyo on board doing OS duty, though we presume an upgrade to Gingerbread will be heading out before too long.

The Infuse 4G officially goes on sale on May 15, and will cost from $199 up front on two-year contracts.

This is one phone we certainly wouldn't mind getting a closer look of here in the UK, but of course even if we did, we'd still not have any 4G networks to unleash its full potential on.

Not impressed. And my time with the SE Xperia Arc taught me a lesson about ultra-skinny plastick slabs.
