Default AT&T Confirms: Sideloading For All Future Phones

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.androidcentral.com/att-joins-sideloading-party-fashionably-late-still-attending' target='_blank'>http://www.androidcentral.com/att-j...still-attending</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"When we broke the news that AT&amp;T is pushing updates to older Android devices to finally enable sideloading, and with the Infuse 4G being its first phone to sideload out of the box, we naturally assumed AT&amp;T will continue to leave its future phones open."</em></p><p><img height="221" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//adt/auto/1305815873.usr206.png" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="550" /></p><p>About those flying pigs... your're gonna need a heftier&nbsp;umbrella. AT&amp;T has confirmed to developers that, in addition to a few older phones, all future phones will ship with sideloading enabled. This is great news indeed. This will allow for all AT&amp;T customers to make full use of the Amazon Appstore and other out of market apps. Maybe some day I won't be afraid to purchase an AT&amp;T phone... maybe.</p>

Since AT&T is releasing this on a per phone basis, there is a pretty easy work around if you don't want to wait. The complete directions can be located at:

It's very cool. Download ADW.Launcher from the Android Market and follow the directions to allow side loading.
