Samsung Infuse 4G confirmed at event

AT&T and Samsung at their New York City event tonight formally priced and dated the Infuse 4G. The largest-ever dedicated smartphone should reach the carrier's shops on May 15 and should still cost the same $200 on contract as other smartphones. AT&T is preloading a special copy of Angry Birds with a special, contest-enabling unlockable stage as well as a 2GB microSD card loaded with movie trailers.

Early adopters also get a bonus $25 coupon for video downloads from Samsung's Media Hub. Stores should have several case choices as well as car and desk mounts.

The flagship is centered on its 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, which while 480x800 is seen as ideal for movie viewing. Performance also appears to sit between the Galaxy S and the Galaxy S II with a 1.2GHz but possibly single-core processor, although it's the first AT&T phone to support a full 21Mbps HSPA+ Internet link that earns the name. Along with affording room for both an eight-megapixel back camera and a front 1.3-megapixel camera, the sheer size allows for a relatively thin design at about 0.36 inches deep at its thickest point.

Android 2.2 ships out of the box, but it's not clear if or when the phone will move to 2.3 or later.
