    In a world where Ice Cream Sandwich dominates the news, the LG Thrill 4G, AT&T's version of the manufacturer's first 3D-smartphone, is getting its Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. You now have every right to say a big "meh". The international version, the Optimus 3D, got Android 2.3 at the end of last year, which was still late if you ask some. Regardless, if you have a Thrill 4G, your version should bump to 20P with the addition of the video editor that handles both 2D and 3D, a faster gallery and improved video quality. You'll have to use LG's PC software in order to apply the update so ...

    Now that smartphone manufacturers have had some time to look at the Ice Cream Sandwich source, we're starting to hear some more detailed estimates of when certain handsets are likely to start receiving their updates to Android 4.0. Just last week, Sony Ericsson talked about its plans to get Ice Cream Sandwich out to its Xperia and Walkman models in early spring. Today it's LG's turn, and the company has taken to Facebook to post its current schedule for Android 4.0 deployment. The first of LG's phones to make the jump to ICS will get their updates sometime in the second quarter of next ...

    The LG Thrill 4G is naturally the AT&T version of the LG Optimus 3D, which we previously reviewed. It's designed to compete with the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint as a GSM flavored Android phone featuring 3D imaging and display technology. The Thrill 4G also features three technologies that are "dual" in nature; a dual-core processor, dual-channel data transport and memory, and dual-memory chips. Of course, you've got the dual cameras for 3D photo and video recording as well as the 3D screen which displays two fields to your two eyes. As you can imagine, the 3D imaging needs a lot of power. Can the ...

    The LG Thrill 4G is very similar to the LG Optimus 3D. It's running Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box and not everything makes use of the 3D screen technology. There is a special 3D launcher that is activated from a button on the side and 3D enabled applications appear separately by default in the application tray. This is also running LG's custom flavor of Android, so you'll see some significant differences from the stock Froyo build. The video below will show you all of the added AT&T programs that have been bundled with this device as well as show you some of the 3D programs, though you ...

    The LG Thrill 4G features a dual-core 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP4 processor aided by a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, 512 MB of RAM and 8GB of ROM storage. The screen is 4.3", 800x480 pixel glasses-free auto-stereoscopic 3D. The dual five megapixel cameras on the back can record 1080p 2D (30 fps) and 720p 3D (30 fps) video. There's also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls and conferencing in addition to 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, ...

    AT&T has finally launched the LG Thrill 4G on their network. This is AT&T's first 3D smartphone, and also one that's been delayed and anticipated by many in these past weeks. Make sure you catch Adam Lein's recent unboxing video for details on specs and first impressions, and all our evolving coverage of the device from here on. The HTC Jetstream, which is the official name of the HTC Puccini we leaked months ago, is also available as of today on AT&T. This Honeycomb tablet brings all the joy of HTC Sense to Honeycomb, but sadly with some lack of "common sense" with the price tag. It'll ...

    The LG Thrill 4G comes in your average orange AT&T branded box that contains the phone, a battery, a wall charger, sync/charging cable, HDMI cable, and some guides. An 8Gb Micro SD card is also included and pre-installed in the device. There's nothing special or impressive about the packaging, but I like the full color quick start guide with images and instructions for basic tasks. It's also great that the phone comes with an HDMI cable so that you can output videos and images to a big screen high-definition TV if you want to. Oddly no headphones were included with the device though, so ...

    We've already heard official wording from AT&T regarding their own LG Optimus 3D variant, the LG Thrill 4G, and it's coming officially on September 4. Radio Shack is also prepared to welcome the phone this week and the price will be a great one! The Shack price will be $79.99 (the exact same price which was featured in the Target circular) if you get it with a new contract or $549.99 (again, same as Target) if you choose to grab the phone only. The phone sports a dual-core 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP4 processor aided by a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, 512 MB of RAM, 8GB of ROM, glasses-free ...

    The AT&T variant of the LG Optimus 3D, the AT&T Thrill 4G, has had its fair share of launch delays and it could have probably hit the market sooner. The carrier has finally made an announcement regarding the phone's launch date, which is set for September 4. Better being late than never doesn't really apply to the fast-moving tech world of gadgets we live in (also applies to the U.S. variants of the Galaxy S II) but after being introduced in February at MWC, the Optimus 3D will finally make its way into the hands of AT&T customers. There's currently no word regarding pricing but AT&T ...

    The LG Thrill 4G just wouldn't show up as it keeps getting reportedly delayed but it will definitely be worth the waiting since AT&T confirmed a price tag of under $100. The U.S. variant of the LG Optimus 3D just showed up on a Target circular and it is listed for $79.99 with a two-year contract (or $549.99 for the phone only). Still not sure when it will hit the shelves or what the AT&T official price will be, but you'll definitely get a great phone with a dual-core 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP4 processor aided by a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, 512 MB of RAM and 8GB of ROM storage. Of course, the ...

    The LG Optimus 3D was introduced at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as the manufacturer's first glasses-free 3D phone. It will arrive on AT&T's network as the Thrill 4G and will directly compete with the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint, while the worldwide Optimus 3D will try to lure in customers looking for the HTC EVO – the EVO 3D's international variant. The phone is being marketed as one featuring a tri-dual architecture, which means that it packs three components that are dual: a dual-core processor; second, dual-channel data transport and memory; and dual-memory chips. With this ...

    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 ...

    LG's Thrill 4G will be the cheapest 3D smartphone around (not there's much in the way of competition right now) when it lands on AT&T. We were expecting it for August 7, based on previous rumors and leaks, but as is all too common when you're dealing with smartphone releases, it now looks like that date is going to get pushed back to late August. A leaked Radio Shack notice informs its employees that AT&T will be delaying availability of the Thrill 4G, and as a result, the smartphone won't be ready until two weeks later on August 21. While the memo only refers to Radio Shack's sales of the ...

    Over this past weekend, we got a look at a leaked Radio Shack document discussing the launch of the LG Thrill 4G on AT&T. According to that material, the smartphone would go up for sale on August 7 with a shockingly low price of around $80 on-contract. That seemed almost too good to be true, so we've been awaiting confirmation from the carrier on both the release date and retail price. While AT&T isn't going to give us too much help pinning down just when the Thrill 4G will launch, the revelation of a $99 sticker price shows us that, surprisingly, this really is going to be a budget-priced ...
