Samsung had its Infuse 4G Android phone for AT&T on hand, but wasn't willing to let anyone touch it. Even so, Phone Scoop was able to develop a few first impressions.

The Infuse 4G is a big phone. The screen is massive, and the calculator effect is no joke. Samsung didn't let us hold the Infuse, but it is ginormous. Every dimension is overly large. Since we weren't able to hold it we can't say with authority how it feels in the hand or how much it weighs.
The screen is impressive. It builds on samsung's Super AMOLED technology with even more brightness and contract. It really looks fantastic. The controls on the left and right sides were about what you'd expect from an Android phone, including microUSB, volume toggle, headset jack, and power/lock key.
As for the user interface, it appears to be Samsung version of Android, similar to what is available on the Galaxy S / Nexus S line of smartphones. The menus looked about the same, as did the basic home screen layout and appearance.
In the few minutes we were able to coax a Samsung employee to interact with it, it appeared to be fluid, fast, and we saw no hiccups with respect to performance.
This will likely be a good Android device for AT&T, but since we couldn't touch it, we'll reserve final judgement until AT&T sends us a review unit.
In what has become something of an annual tradition, TCL has unveiled new, unique flexible-display concepts. The newest and most unique is the "360-Degree Ultra Flex", which has a 360º hinge that allows the device to be folded either inward or outward.
There have been a number of "smartwatches" for kids in recent years. They all have GPS and let you keep tabs on your kid's location, and offer some limited forms of communication.

A really important segment of the mobile market is devices for young kids. Mobile technology provides communication and safety features that feel essential, but how young is too young for a phone?

i hope Samsung didnt ignore the gps!
would it hurt to make the phone feel more structured?
