So we were lucky enough to be able to attend the Rogers/Samsung Infuse 4G Launch party last night and managed to grab a video of some key Rogers people (Raj) and Samsung people (Paul) talking about their partnership and what they’re hoping it will mean for both their countries.
They also dropped some pretty interesting tidbits of information like, Paul from Samsung mentioned
-Samsung Captivate was aÂ phenomenalÂ success and is still selling strong almost a year after launch
-Infuse 4G biggest SuperAMOLED Screen
-21mb/s 4G data speeds
-Infuse will be launching with Android 2.3 instead of Froyo which the States version currentlyÂ
The biggest thing we would mention is that Paul from Samsung said…
Just the begginning of some great Samsung phones coming to Rogers in the next 90 to 120 days that will surpass yourÂ excitementÂ level
So which phones could he be talking about? We’ve known for a long time now that the Galaxy S II will be releasing in multiple different forms like the original yet we’ve heard no word of ANY releases except for Bell/Virgin which is tomorrow. Will the Galaxy S II be launching on Rogers within the next 3 months? Or could they possibly be talking about the Samsung Hercules or something similar?? Who knows, but we’ll be sure to keep our eyes out for any new news!
As a nice recap, the Samsung Infuse 4G has a huge 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display and packs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 1.2 GHz processor. A release date is not set yet, but I was able to squeeze out of the reps at the party that the launch for it would be announced within the next few days (accessories are already showing up in Rogers stores).
Until we know more info, check out the videos and a couple pictures, we’ll get a full review of the device up in a couple days.
