OTA update from AT&T to allow older models to sideload apps
Apparently the carrier is sensitive to this issue. As early as today, owners of any one of the three models should see an OTA update on their device that will allow third party apps to be installed legitimately on their phone. Kudos to AT&T for not only changing their stance on sideloading apps, but also for making sure that owners of some of the carrier's older Android models get the opportunity to install third party apps as well.
AT&T is sending out an OTA upgrade to some of its older Android models which will allow them to accept third party apps

What AT&T does the right thing and no one gives them any love? Well I for one approve. I may not like their Data Plan rates but over all I like AT&T. God know's I'll be passing roll over minutes to my Great Grandchildren in their inheritance.

becuase it has about 50 million bugs, there are already better options, it is made by moto, it has motoblur, and obviously, it doesnt get updates very quickly judging by this article...
