What's this? An AT&T Android device that doesn't shackle you to the official Android Market? The new Samsung Infuse 4G lets you flip the toggle to download any Android app from any market. That's great! But is it the future?

We contacted AT&T, who didn't deny the Infuse was a step in a new direction of liberated phones, and a company exec told PC Mag "I think we'll go more open," vis a vis apps—so we'd wager this is the start of a (welcomed) trend. [via TechCrunch]
