    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 ...

    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 ...

    There may be a bunch of smartphones with Optimus 3D-like hardware floating around the halls of the FCC, but only one is the LG Thrill 4G, set to debut on AT&T. The carrier gave the handset a release date no more specific than "summer", but a rumor earlier this month claimed that the phone would assuredly be released before the end of July. While we still don't have a specific date we can confirm, we have our suspicions that the Thrill 4G will be released in close proximity to the Thrill-themed private event LG is hosting in New York on July 25. LG and AT&T may not kick-off sales of the ...

    AT&T announced way back in March that it would bringing the Optimus 3D stateside as the LG Thrill 4G, and now the first commercial for this dual-core handset has appeared. Still no mention of a release date here, though -- Android Central suggested that it will arrive before the end of the month, which sounds about right. One of only two handsets on the market (outside of Japan, anyway) to record and play back 3D content -- along with the HTC EVO 3D -- the Optimus 3D/Thrill 4G offers up a WVGA display, five-megapixel stereoscopic image capture, and front-facing webcam. We recently saw a ...

    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, ...

    AT&T recently announced it would be bringing the HTC ChaCha to the States as the Status, and we've known for even longer about the efforts to re-brand the LG Optimus 3D as the Thrill 4G for its AT&T release, but we didn't have a clear idea of when either smartphone would be released. A newly-leaked screenshot of upcoming AT&T launches now gives us a smaller window of when to expect each model, but we're still left wanting for a date. In a recent press release, AT&T claimed that it would begin sales of the LG Thrill 4G sometime this summer. With well over two months to go, that meant we ...

    We see so many smartphones pass by, whether from early leaks, FCC filings, or finally formal announcements from manufacturers and carriers, it can be hard to keep track of what phones are expected to arrive, when. Motorola and AT&T wanted to remind you that some of their models are still in the works, updating us as to when to expect them. Verizon and Motorola pulled the plug on the Droid Bionic months ago, sending it back to the shop to be re-tooled for a later release. Last we heard from Motorola, it wanted to get the Bionic back out sometime this summer, but there haven't been any ...

    The Thrill 4G on AT&T will be the first one of the first opportunities for smartphone users in the States to check out a handset with a no-glasses-required 3D screen. While Sharp's 3D models and the LG Optimus 3D - the Thrill 4G without carrier branding - are already available, this AT&T launch will finally help (along with the HTC EVO 3D) get one of these devices out into the hands of smartphone users and give us an indication if the 3D screen fad will take off in the US. We've been keeping our eyes on FCC filings, to get an idea on the progress being made towards the Thrill's release, ...

    The LG Optimus 3D didn't manage to become the world's first 3D smartphone -- there was at least the Sharp Lynx 3D ahead of it -- but managed to set two other "world's first" record by shipping with the world's first 3D AR browser and by having a "tri-dual configuration". In the latest Optimus 3D video, LG is showing the world what it means to have a "tri-dual" configuration. The smartphone sports a combo of dual core processor, dual channel and dual memory architecture. This is delivered with the help of the TI OMAP4 chipset which should offer great performance and user experience. Watch ...

    The LG Optimus 3D -- joining AT&T as the LG Thrill 4G -- is going to be packed with the world's first three dimensional augmented-reality browser Wikitude 3D -- maybe getting another Guinness record for a world's first. Many world's firsts here: world's first dual-core, dual-channel, dual-memory architecture, the first full 3D platform providing glasses-free viewing, recording and sharing of 3D content as well as the world's first 3D augmented-reality browser. What does this mean besides all the marketing talk? While 2D AR only displays overlapped objects, the new 3D AR browser shows ...

    Last month AT&T announced its plans to launch the LG Optimus 3D in the US as the Thrill 4G. Almost immediately thereafter, an Optimus 3D showed up in paperwork filings at the FCC, but with an assortment of UMTS bands that just didn't make sense for AT&T and the US. Now it looks like the Thrill 4G, as it will appear on AT&T, may have finally landed at the FCC as well, with documents published today showing the phone supporting AT&T's 3G frequencies. The smartphone is listed in FCC documentation as the LG P920H; the Optimus 3D we saw last month was simply the P920. This time, the phone uses ...

    Just a day after AT&T revealed that it will be bringing LG's Optimus 3D no-glasses-required 3D Android phone to the US as the Thrill 4G, paperwork for the Optimus 3D has shown up in the FCC's system, sharing with us all its RF testing goodness. Interestingly, the evaluated bands on this Optimus 3D, listed as LG model P920, are for UMTS II and IV. Those don't match what we'd expect from the international, unlocked version of the phone, nor what the Thrill 4G should have for AT&T service. Either there's the unlikely situation that the Thrill 4G has been designed to support both AT&T and ...

    We've had our eye on the innovative LG Optimus 3D since we first heard about it back in January, with its screen technology capable of recreating 3D graphics without the need for any special glasses. Pre-orders for the phone in the UK have placed its release date around the end of April, but we've been left guessing as to when it might possibly arrive in the US. AT&T has now announced that it will be the carrier to bring 3D smartphones to American audiences, as it renames what appears to be the Optimus 3D to the LG Thrill 4G, and prepares to sell the phone in the coming months. While AT&T ...
