    We've been wondering all along why AT&T dropped the 3D moniker and chose to go with the 4G in the case of its own LG Optimus 3D, marketed as LG Thrill 4G? There might have been a last minute change -- or a mistake in the Best Buy buyer's guide -- as the phone now shows up as the AT&T Thrill 3D. If you look at the screenshot above taken from Best Buy' buyer's guide you'll see the LG Thrill 3D. It's the same LG Thrill 4G, the AT&T variant of LG's first glasses-free 3D phone, the Optimus 3D. It's been reportedly delayed to August 21 but seeing it in Best Buy's product catalog for August is ...

    We knew that the CyanogenMod team was already working on bringing some custom Android goodness to the LG Optimus 3D and now, thanks to developer Ricardo Cerqueira, we can get a glance at how it will look and work on the phone. In the video below you can see that the build is running buttery smooth with no problems whatsoever on LG's first glasses-free 3D smartphone. NenaMark seems to like the build too as it reports 58 fps and according to the developers, 3D is also working so the main selling point of the device won't be affected by the custom ROM. Check out the video below: Source: ...

    As was the case in the television industry, OEMs that make smartphone are hoping that 3D is the next big thing that drives millions of consumers to upgrade to more expensive hardware. We are in the midst of the first wave of 3D phone releases: today you can buy an LG Optimus 3D, the Sprint HTC EVO 3D, and a couple others. It remains to be seen whether 3D on a phone will play out like it did with televisions (few have upgraded), or if the new technology will be a true value-add that becomes standard on all future high end smartphones. Those of you that are using a 3D smartphone, let us know ...

    After CyanogenMod recently added support for the Samsung Galaxy S II, two new recent and higher-end phones will join the party as custom ROMs are in the works for both the HTC Sensation and the LG Optimus 3D. The two screenshots above were posted on Google+ by CyanogenMod developers Ricardo Cerquiera and Ed Carrigan. As you can see, Android 2.3.4 is in for the two phones and, even if it's not a huge step for Pyramid users, it will be great news for Optimus 3D owners as the phone is shipping with Android 2.2 Froyo. The builds are still cooking so don't expect to flash in the coming days; ...

    The LG Optimus 3D -- soon the AT&T Thrill 4G -- is shipping with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box which could be a deal breaker for some but the manufacturer promised an official update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread (coming this autumn according to rumors). You'd expect a full-3D experience when it comes to a 3D phone but LG went with its classic LG UI. Because of the technology, 3D is only available in landscape but unfortunately the UI supports neither landscape mode nor 3D mode. What the phone has though is a 3D launcher, where you'll find a couple of shortcuts for games, gallery, YouTube ...

    The LG Optimus 3D, launched at this year's MWC in February, is coming to AT&T as the Thrill 4G. It should be available over at Radio Shack starting August 7 -- even though a late July launch was rumored for the phone's availability -- but you can now secure your unit. If you want some non-HTC 3D goodness and you're on AT&T, you can now reserve a unit for you by going to the Radio Shack store and grabbing a $50 gift card. When it will be available at the retailer, the phone will set you back $79.99 on a two-year contract, $549.99 for the phone only. As its unlocked cousin, the Thrill 4G ...

    Whether 3D is a gimmick or a novelty which will soon become a standard is yet unknown as it is too early to say but it's definitely the selling point of the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Optimus 3D. They're both their respective manufacturer's sole 3D phones and, as fresh as they get, they will be coming exclusively to Rogers Canada. The carrier has just introduced both the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Optimus 3D and will make a microsite available for customers to pre-order either one of the two (existing Rogers customers can now reserve their HTC EVO 3D or LG Optimus 3D on the Rogers Reservation System ...

    The LG Optimus 3D -- with its AT&T Thrill 4G variant -- and the HTC EVO 3D -- both European and Sprint -- are two of the current 3D-enabled smartphones. Besides both sporting an auto-stereoscopic display that allows for glasses-free 3D content playback, they both sport dual stereoscopic cameras at the back for capturing their own 3D content. Aside from pictures you take, videos you shoot and the games that come bundled or offered with your smartphone, there really is no huge choice for 3D content available. This will probably change as games and applications will support three-dimensional ...

    Besides all the funky internals which make it a powerful phone, the LG Optimus 3D sports a dual five-megapixel stereoscopic camera at its back which allows for both 2D and 3D image capturing and video recording. The phone is able to record 2D videos in 1080p at 30fps and 3D videos in 720p at 30fps. The two-dimensional videos are nothing new but the three-dimensional ones can be played back on the LG Optimus 3D, on an external 3D display to which it can connect via HDMI or on another 3D-enabled device, directly from YouTube. We've made a couple of test recordings, both 2D and 3D, so check ...

    LG announced the Optimus 3D on February 13, one day prior to this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where we managed to take a look and have a quick hands-on with the Korean manufacturer's first 3D phone. The phone features a huge 4.3-inch WVGA glasses-free 3D display which means that it can play back three dimensional content without the need of additional hardware. Because of its dual stereoscopic five-megapixel camera at its back, it can also record and create its own 3D content. In this first video in our series we are unboxing the phone and looking forward to spending some ...

    The LG Optimus 3D is the Korean manufacturer's first glasses-free, auto-stereoscopic 3D display-enabled smartphone featuring a 1GHz TI OMAP processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8GB of ROM, dual-five-megapixel cameras for 1080p 2D (30 fps) and 720p 3D (30 fps) recording as well as a 1.3-megapixel front facer. In addition, it's got all the usual suspects: accelerometer, proximity sensor, light sensor, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA and hotspot capability, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP and EDR, microUSB and HDMI-out ports, GPS with A-GPS support, and a 1,500mAh battery. The radio supports GSM ...

    It's been seven months since the debut of Android Gingerbread, and we continue to see brand-new smartphones released running Froyo. We appreciate the lengthy development cycles phone manufacturers must plan for, but we're really starting to get to the point where our tolerance for seeing Android 2.2 on a new smartphone is dropping sharply. LG's Optimus 3D, for instance, despite its eye-catching display and powerful processor and memory configuration, will still arrive with Froyo on board. At least now we have an idea of how long users will have to wait before they can finally upgrade, with ...

    We have seen a whole lot of LG Optimus 3D hardware show up in FCC documentation. It's showed its face as the P920, P920H, P925 (the Thrill 4G on AT&T), and now it's back as the P929, apparently sporting compatibility with T-Mobile's 4G band. What's odd about this particular model, is that while it has the 1700MHz band that we'd expect for T-Mobile, there's also support for 850MHz, used in the States by AT&T along with 1900MHz; you just don't see it by itself, nor alongside 1700MHz like this. That could mean that, despite the FCC certification, this model may not be destined for the US, ...

    When LG released its Optimus 2X, we learned that even a dual-core processor wasn't necessarily enough on its own to deliver the kind of performance we were hoping to see from such a supposedly-powerful smartphone. After its release, users noticed that the Android's 1080p video recording performance wasn't quite up to par. It turned out that the 2X was doubling frames, employing some gnarly-looking compression, and still not reaching 24fps, considered the bare minimum for acceptable video. A software update solved the doubled frame issue, but performance was still south of expectations. ...

    We saw the LG Optimus 3D back in February at this year's MWC but the Korean manufacturer only recently launched the phone officially with projected availability in July. If you're in the U.K., you can now grab your LG Optimus 3D from Carphone Warehouse. The phone is free if you sign a contract for monthly £35 with either O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone. If you prefer to stay contract free you'll have to pay £500 for the unlocked phone which sports a dual-core, dual-channel architecture aside from its glasses free 3D display.
