In a news that belongs to 2011, AT&T and Samsung have just upgraded the Samsung Infuse 4G to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, proving once again how bad the situation is when it comes to receiving the latest software upgrades on carrier-locked (or even otherwise) Android devices.
It's difficult to believe that this phone (sold for $200 on contract, no less) was launched with Froyo at launch back in May last year and what's worse is that it managed to make it till 2012 with the same OS. And now when Android 4.0 is out and will slowly be making an appearance on other handsets it's getting the Gingerbread update, something it should have had from the start. Remember the promise Google made to deliver the latest updates to new devices 18 months after the launch? It seems neither Google, the OEMs nor the carriers remember it anymore.
Anyway, coming back to the actual update, it brings the usual Gingerbread features to the device, along with some handset specific updates. The update log is as follows:
its kind of sad waiting for the updates...:/ but at least u made me laugh a lot with that meme xD lol
If what I hear is true that AT&T are renowned for their poor support.... ...then vote with your feet, customers! General rule is not to buy from a carrier if you want the full benefits and pleasure from your precious device.
I really just don't get things like this. Why even bother with Gingerbread now. Why not just go to ICS? The device is more than capable of running it.
