Default AT&T Android Device Allows For Installation Of Non-Market Apps: Watch Out For Flying Pigs

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2011/05/06/hallelujah-the-att-infuse-4g-can-install-non-market-apps/' target='_blank'>http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2011/05...on-market-apps/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Hey, whatdy'a know: Mr. FedEx-Guy (or "Tom", as we've come to know him) just dropped by with a shiny new Samsung Infuse 4G in tow. As we do with any Android-powered AT&amp;T device, the very first thing we did was check to see if AT&amp;T screwed up again. Surprise! They've finally done Android right!"</em></p><p><img height="319" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1304796229.usr206.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="550" /></p><p>Wow.... Just wow. I never thought I'd see the day where AT&amp;T loosened it's leash any what so ever on it's mobile customers. But here it is, folks. It looks like starting with the Samsung Infuse 4G all new AT&amp;T (and&nbsp;hopefully&nbsp;the older ones too) will be able to install apps from unknown sources. Oh you know, things like apps from something like the Amazon Appstore! I think it's time for a ticker tape parade! Now if we could just do something about all the crapware....</p>
