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.

20111118_112611

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:
  • Dan Doan-Draper from Rolla, MO

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.

Good luck!

  • Gene Yun

    Absolutely positively!!

  • Christian

    Negative. The budget of a college student doesn't allow for it.

  • Christopher Green

    I would love to have this phone for Christmas! Nothing wrong with a bigger screen in my book.

    Indeed I will Win To gift it to my loving brother !

  • dragongunner

    I will not be buying any Android devices for myself or anyone else for that matter because I will not be here to do so. I will be celebrating Christmas this year in Baghdad, Iraq. Here's to hoping that one of these devices goes to a well deserving person.

  • kvs678

    I will be giving an Android device to a relative, if I can afford it!

  • https://plus.google.com/114433964932334427137/about Zach

    I am trying to talk my dad into android. So if he's open to change, the phone I would be buying him in surprise would be the Galaxy S2 skyrocket.

  • cecil havins

    Obviously, otherwise I would not have commented.

  • Walt D

    Sadly, no. It's too soon to upgrade my wife's phone with ATT. But on the other hand, if I won this phone it would serve two purposes. The first being a gift and the second would be the perfect opportunity to wean her from that dang I-thingy!

  • yella

    Yes actually i sure will try, with paying bills,I was actually looking to get myself a newer android phone,but im strapped for cash.Funny thing is my nephew asked me could he have my ANCIENT cliq xt when i got a new phone.So if i win,he will get my cliq xt.

  • GergS

    I'm not buying it for him, but I directed my brother to get the GN when it comes out... he is waiting semi-patiently...

  • http://pra.sh Prash

    "Will you be getting an Android device as a gift for someone this holiday season?" -Definitely! I was the first in my family to get an android device. No one understood why I'd get something different and new, then when I got my N1, I gave my G1 to my brother. Later he got a SGS II device himself. My dad also got an android phone through Radio Shack recently. Now the only people who do not own an android phone in my family are both with AT&T.

    I'm planning on getting one of them an android phone, but cannot afford two so am I getting an android phone for someone else? Yes I am. It would complete the plans if I won another as well to give to the other and be a true android family :)

  • http://www.strangereaction.com Scott

However, earlier this year, we surprised my brother by giving him a new android phone, after he painted our house. We "presented" it by telling him it was only a book, in wrapping paper.
