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.
AT&T notes that this device is a YouTube 3D Lead Phone, noting that yes, it will still be coming with the YouTube 3D app pre-loaded as we saw on the LG Optimus 3D. This leads into their talk today in NYC about how they’re pushing for a whole 3D social media environment – LG, AT&T, and depending on where you’re living at, Texas Instruments are all pushing for this 3D sharing space in which everyone would have this same device (or different devices with the same 3D capabilities) collecting and sharing 3D media with one another.
This device also comes packed with some full games from Gameloft that’ll satisfy your 3D tastebuds to the max: Let’s Golf 2, Asphalt 6 and NOVA. You can get a better look at what’s going on in our full review of this device or by checking out the hands-on video here:
The image you see at the far top of this post is the device as we’ve seen it, that being the LG Optimus 3D tied to no carrier. The image you see next is the AT&T version of the device, looking by all appearances to be essentially the exact same setup, but officially tied to AT&T in the software. Below you’ll be able to see our Hands-On with 3D video as filmed of the LG Optimus 3D – expect a very similar experience on the AT&T version of the device:
