samsung-infuse-4g-android-gingerbread-update
Last Updated: November 25th, 2011

A few days ago, we received a mystery package from the good folks at RadioShack. Inside the package were three phones - the Samsung Stratosphere on Verizon, HTC EVO Design 4G on Sprint, and Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T. Since these phones are ours to do with what we please, we've decided to do what we always do when we end up with extra goodies: give them away.

Since we have three phones to hand out, we're going to make each contest quick and dirty. Each one will last for one day, and one day only.

RadioShack's Pre-Black Friday Sale

Before we get into the giveaway details, we want to give a shoutout to the guys at RadioShack. They have an awesome pre-Black Friday sale currently going with over twenty-five phone from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon all going for absolutely free. Here is a shortlist of some of the deals that you can catch between now and tomorrow:

Keep in mind that the deal ends tomorrow, November 23, so if you're looking to score a new phone for nothing, you better hurry!

What You Get

samsung-infuse-4g-android-gingerbread-update

We gave away the first of the three phones, the Samsung Stratosphere, yesterday (the post will be updated with the winner shortly), and today's offering is the Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T.

The Infuse brought a lot to AT&T when it was released - it was the first device on Ma Bell to allow sideloading of apps, as well as being the thinnest Android phone in the US at the time it was released. It's still a very relevant smartphone, with specs slightly above modern mid-range devices:

  • 4.5-inch 480x800 Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1.2Ghz single-core Hummingbird Processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 8.9mm to 9.24mm thin
  • 8MP rear camera with 720p video capture
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • 16 GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • Android 2.2 with Touchwiz

How To Win

This contest is now over. Here is our winner, selected at random:

Congratulations - you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

Alright, so you want to win this thing. Drop the answer to the following question in the comments:

Will you be getting an Android device as a gift for someone this holiday season?

Simple, right? You have until 12:00PM PT Tomorrow, November 23, to get your entry in. At that time we will pick the winner at random.

Since this an AT&T phone, this contest is for US residents only.

  • Haloruler64

    Nope. In my opinion, a phone is a big (but not necessarily too big) investment for a holiday. Maybe a birthday, but not a holiday. Grew up in a Russian immigrant family that did not get extravagant gifts (makes my appreciate gifts like my Galaxy SII :D). However, I am getting an HP Veer 4G as an early Christmas gift! $35 on eBay! Dad has one, love the little thing!

  • http://www.androidwebhosting.com Zack

    Hoping to get a Samsung Infuse 4g for my GF so I can get her off that friggin iPhone. All she does is complain about what it can't do, yet she won't let me spend money on a new phone because it's not like it's broken!!
