Remember the Samsung Infuse 4G? Yeah, the one with 4.5-inch screen and 1.2GHz processor that just hit AT&T shelves two days ago. Well, continuing with its newly-found source-code-release motif, Samsung dropped the code for the Infuse 4G over at the Open Source Developers Center.

Let the homebrewing begin! Hit the link below for download.

It looks like June 8th is going to be quite a day around T-Mobile, because three new Android devices should be hitting the shelves. Among the three devices is the HTC Sensation - the highly anticipated 4.3 inch beast that rocks Sense 3.0. Not to distract from the others that are dropping at the same time, though, here is a spec-sheet rundown of each.

As the lowest-end of the three devices, the GT2 is a sequel to the Samsung Gravity T, but this time it's packing Android under the hood.

The crew over at 911sniper are all over some HTC leaks today, aren't they? Here's another one for you - this time it's Gingerbread for the HTC EVO Shift 4G. Hopefully all of you that are holding an EVO Shift in your hand right now will get some Gingerbread lovin' shortly after devs get a hold of this.

The download seems to be moving at a snail's pace for us, so we're working on uploading this to our mirror right now.

UPDATE: The Gingerbread radio is apparently being linked to hard bricks. We have removed the link for the time being, until this issue is resolved, or a new radio version is leaked.

This morning 911Sniper dropped a leaked Gingerbread test build for the HTC Thunderbolt, but there was one issue: it wasn't flashable. Our buddy Justin Case from TeamAndIRC immediately took it to the lab and started dissecting its parts to see what needed to be done.

The HTC Holiday has been somewhat elusive up until now, but 911sniper has gotten ahold of a leaked ROM that, if legit, shows some absolutely beastly specs for this upcoming AT&T monster. Check it out:

Here's the simple breakdown:

  • 4.5 Inch qHD 960x540 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi

If the actual device holds true to these specs (and I see no reason why it wouldn't), then this is definitely a piece of hardware to watch for.

If you happen to own a Samsung Captivate, HTC Aria, or HTC Inspire 4G, then the dream of many, many Android owners on AT&T is about to be yours - the ability to legitimately sideload apps. AT&T lifted its sideloading-barrier on the newly released Samsung Infuse 4G, and naturally, the question arose: What about older Android devices? Now we have our answer.

This means that you will be able to enjoy the little pleasures that other Android users currently have - like the Amazon Appstore and non-market apps like wireless tether.

Welcome to the third iteration of our super-awesome bootscreen animation roundup. It's been about six weeks since our last one, so it's definitely about time for another go. I'm sure at this point no introduction is needed, so let's get right into the screens.

If you're not sure how to change your boot animation, take a look at our primer.

You can find even more boot animation goodness in the first two editions of this roundup, here and here.

If you've been considering jumping ship from your current carrier and hopping over to Sprint, you may want to finalize that decision before June 23, 2011. Why is that, you ask? Because until that date, Sprint will give you $125 per line if you port your existing number over (with a qualifying smartphone or data plan, of course). That's right, you will get paid to switch carriers.

Here's how the deal works: buy a new smartphone from Sprint's online store, transfer your number over (you should be prompted to do so during checkout), and register for your credit within 72 hours of activating your phone.

If you've been thinking about picking up the Nexus S 4G on Sprint, then now is the time to go for it, because Wirefly has a deal that's hard to resist. You can get this stock Android beauty for $99 with a new two year agreement, or by adding it as a new line on a family plan. This is indeed a killer deal on an amazing piece of hardware.

If you need a refresher on the specs of this gem, here you go:

  • 4 Inch Super AMOLED display
  • 1GHz Hummingbird Processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 16GB Built-in storage
  • 5MP Rear camera with 720p video capture
  • VGA front camera
  • Stock Android 2.3

The same phone will set you back $199 at the Sprint store or $150 at Best Buy, so there really isn't a comparable deal out there right now.

If you have been patiently waiting for the first 4G LTE DROID to hit Verizon's network after last month's 4G outage that delayed the original release, you'll be pleased to know that your wait ends tomorrow, as the Samsung DROID Charge is finally set to hit the shelves of Big Red.

The DROID Charge has been subject to heavy criticism due to its high price tag and lackluster hardware (read: lack of a dual core processor), and even got a not-so-great review from our own David Ruddock.
