AT&T re-enables sideloading on the Infuse 4G!

Samsung Infuse 4G sideloading

My friends, our long national AT&T sideloading nightmare is over, it appears. From the Motorola Backflip to the HTC Aria to the Samsung Captivate — and every phone in between — AT&T locked down its phones so that they could only download apps from the Android Market. Security concerns, don’tcha know. Problem is, there are plenty of legitimate reasons why you might want (and/or need) to sideload. Take the Amazon Appstore, for example. Can’t use it if you can’t install non-Market apps.

That’s no good, and we said so in a recent editorial.

But as our guys Andrew and Anndrew (the television series starts shooting this fall) just found out, the Infuse 4G (coming May 15 for $199) indeed allows "Unknown sources" for Android applications. Oh, happy day. Good on AT&T for making this one right.
