LG Optimus 3D

LG Thrill 4G Appears in Target Ad, Listed at just $79

We aren't really sure what AT&T and LG are doing with the LG Thrill 4G (or Thrill 3D) or whatever they are calling this phone, but we are seeing that awesome $79.99 sale price appearing again. The LG Thrill 4G was originally known as the Optimus 3D and you can see our review here. The Thrill 4G was supposed to launch on August 7th over at RadioShack and was even advertized by AT&T for $99 coming early August.

LG Thrill 4G From AT&T Gets Delayed Again?

The LG Thrill 4G is that glasses-free 3D smartphone headed to AT&T early August, or late August, and now reports are saying sometime in September. Yes it has been delayed yet again after initial reports and statements claimed it would launch at the beginning of August. We later heard right from AT&T it was headed to market in the "coming weeks" but sadly that isn't happening either.

LG Thrill 3D Shows Up in Best Buy Ad

The LG Thrill 4G is their latest entry into the Android world headed for AT&T. The phone is a glasses-free 3D powerhouse much like the EVO 3D and I've always wondered why they didn't include the term 3D in the title for the device. Although it was recently delayed til late August a new Best Buy ad showed up making us think it may end up launching sooner.


It's that time again, time to look at LG's vision of a 3D media collecting and sharing world through what we saw before as the LG Optimus 3D and are now seeing as the LG THRILL 4G. This device is essentially the same piece of hardware with different bits inside and connectivity along AT&T's bands specifically - more like branded to AT&T specifically and released on their network. Will this 3D piece of machinery change the way we see personal photo and video sharing? Will its dual-core Texas Instruments processor and its ability to break the 3rd wall into our vision convince the masses to take the LG/AT&T combo plunge? These are some waters you're going to want to take a swim in. Check out how this bit of hardware is working.

LG Thrill 4G Hands-On and Unboxing

What we've got here is a real live glasses-free 3D device, complete with the ability to both capture 3D media through its dual-lens cameras on the back and the ability to play 3D games with its sweet TFT 3D display. In addition, you're able to output 3D media to your 3D-enabled television with the HDMI-out port on the side of the LG Thrill and it's got a 6 foot HDMI cord included in the box! What more could you want! Oh you'd like a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP4 1GHz processor too? Well you're in luck, that's packed in too!

LG Thrill 4G Official on AT&T

What was up until this point known as the LG Optimus 3D is now the LG Thrill 4G, a device which still totes the 3D capabilities but rolls with G-G-G-G in the name to let you know that it's extra gangster. One of the items AT&T is pushing for this device and we're happy to see is their developer program supporting the 3D environment. Nothing pumps your device up like some good apps, and nothing tears your device down like a 3D feature with a limited amount of apps you can use it with. Thusly - develop! This device is also apparently the first AT&T device to come pre-loaded with Qik for use over wifi - video chat in crystal clarity.

LG Optimus 3D hits June 27 in UK; pre-orders open now

It's been a while since we reviewed the LG Optimus 3D, and the dual-core 3D-recording smartphone is finally showing up in stores. After the Optimus 3D got the official green flag last week, UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that it is taking pre-orders for shipments expected from June 27, and ahead of an in-store release on July 7 2011. The Optimus 3D is priced at £499.95 ($808) SIM-free, or from free with a new, two-year agreement. Your money gets you a glasses-free 4.3-inch 3D display, capable of showing 3D images without you needing to wear ridiculous specs, along with a twin 5-megapixel camera on the back for shooting photos and video in the third dimension. On the downside is the fact that, even as the number of Gingerbread smartphones proliferates, LG is still launching the Optimus 3D with Android 2.2. Still, your options for 3D cellphones in the UK are limited, and with the HTC EVO 3D - reviewed this weekend over at SlashGear - not expected in Europe for a while yet, the LG may be your best bet for the moment.
