Dolphin HD, one of the most popular Android browsers, has been pretty unusable on large tablet screens due to choppiness and lag caused by the CPU having to work with a much bigger area. For example, when we got a demo unit of the Galaxy Tab, the problem was quite apparent to the point of Dolphin being downright frustrating on relatively complex sites.

Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" came to the rescue with hardware acceleration capabilities, which allowed shifting all the UI processing from the CPU to the GPU.

It appears that Samsung is going to continue with the Galaxy S brand name, but this upcoming AT&T handset is unlike any other Galaxy S phone you've seen before. The Samsung Infuse 4G improves on the original in just about every way - in fact, it easily tops any phones on the market today:

  • 1.2 GHz (single core) processor
  • 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 8 megapixel rear camera
  • 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • HSPA+ support
  • TouchWiz UI
  • Extremely thin (thinnest phone on AT&T when it launches)

The most interesting aspect is the Super AMOLED Plus display.

Engadget - whose record on these things is usually among the best in the business  - seems to have pulled the trigger on one that's pretty obviously fake. Check it out:

The spec sheet reads like a dream phone (which, again, it very well may be):

  • Gingerbread (Android 2.3)
  • 4.3" or 4.5" (Depending on which part you read) SAMOLED2 screen
  • February release
  • 8 MP Camera
  • 1080p video recording
  • 14.4 Mbps HSPA
  • 1.2 GHz CPU
  • 16 GB of storage
  • Insanely thin
