AT&T Confirms: Sideloading For All Future Phones

"When we broke the news that AT&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&T will continue to leave its future phones open."

About those flying pigs... your're gonna need a heftier umbrella. AT&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&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&T phone... maybe.

Wow.... Just wow. I never thought I'd see the day where AT&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&T (and hopefully 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....
