9 months after it was released, the Samsung Infuse 4G is finally ready to rock Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. AT&T announced that an update for the Infuse 4G is now available through Samsung’s website. After upgrading your phone to Gingerbread, you will see the following new features and improvements to the device:

  • Improved Copy and Paste functionality
  • Redesigned Multi Touch Software Keyboard
  • Download manager for long running HTTP downloads
  • Improved power management and application control
  • Notification Shade: “Flight Mode” added (“Silent” removed)
  • New Fonts options added include Choco Cooky, Cool Jazz, Rosemary
  • Keyboard Changes: Android Keyboard with Wider Spaced keys and Quick Keys at the top
  • New Widgets: The name of the content provider will be listed on the widget list along with the widget name. Previously only the widget name was provided.
  • New Widget: Traffic (Android) added to list of available widgets
  • Menu Changes/New Apps: Downloads and Google Books added new, Promotional pre-load of Angry Birds removed*.

If you’re a Samsung Infuse 4G user, I recommend that you go ahead and update your device. If you’re an Angry Bird user who has been playing the pre-loaded version of Angry Bird, be aware that Angry Birds has been removed from the Gingerbread update and that you will lose all of your progress and will be forced to re-download the game from the Android Market.

For complete upgrade instructions and downloads, head over to Samsung’s website.
