AT&T’s LG Thrill gets an update – to Android 2.3

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

AT&T’s LG Thrill gets an update – to Android 2.3
News from Android Community:

The HTC Vivid has Ice Cream Sandwich! Ten other phones and tablets are getting it too! It’s like software updates are eggs and AT&T’s the Easter bunny! The latest bit of news is that the LG Thrill is getting an update – too bad it’s just Gingerbread. Yes, the forlorn high-end phone has been running Froyo officially all this time, and now (a mere 15 months after Gingerbread became available and almost a year to the day after the phone was announced) it’s finally getting an update to Android 2.3. Thrill owners, try to contain your joy – this has got to be like being the one kid who found his egg rotten.

AT&T’s Thrill 4G is a rebranded version of the Optimus 3D, a respectable phone even by today’s standards. A 1Ghz dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM should make Gingerbread fly, even with LG’s custom skin running on top. The phone is one of just a handful of models that can display lenticular glasses-free 3D on its 4.3-inch, 800×480 LCD screen. 8GB of storage space is alright, but AT&T als…………… continues on Android Community

Huawei Pinnacle (MetroPCS)
News from CNET:

Huawei Pinnacle

I haven’t used the word “fun” to describe a phone for a long time, but the thought crossed my mind after I began playing with the Huawei Pinnacle for MetroPCS. No, the portrait QWERTY cell phone doesn’t have flashing lights like the LG dLite, and it won’t project images on a wall like the Samsung Galaxy Beam, but it does provide an engaging user experience and some colorful accents on the chassis.

This is the phone you get when you want to focus on texts, and on personal-assistant applications. However, the smaller 2.4-inch screen, sluggish processor, and slower 2.5G network speeds make waiting for Internet a real drag. And unfortunately, it stumbled on call quality.

The price is one sweet spot. Originally $ 49.99, the Pinnacle now costs $ 19 after a $ 30 mail-in rebate. Considering all the goodies inside — including a music player, hooks into social networks and e-mail, and the ability to create folders, to name a few — the Pinnacle is a nice surprise.

Samsung Galaxy 3D Looks Solid Against HTC EVO 3D and LG Thrill 4G

Samsung Galaxy 3D Looks Solid Against HTC EVO 3D and LG Thrill 4G

LG Thrill 4G review
News from BGR:

The Thrill 4G is the second Android smartphone in the United States capable of recording and displaying 3D video and photos without the need for special glasses. We first saw the phone during CTIA earlier this year and, after delays, it will launch soon on AT&T for $ 99.99. I spent the better part of the last three weeks carrying the LG Thrill 4G everywhere I went. Are the 3D effects useful and fun or are they just a lame gimmick? Does the “4G” in its name equate to faster data speeds or does it surf on a par with 3G phones? All of this and more is answered in my review, so hit the read link to get started.

Hardware

The LG Thrill 4G is identical to its European cousin, the LG Optimus 3D, in nearly every way. It’s equipped with a 4.3-inch 800 x 480-pixel scree…………… continues on BGR

LG Thrill 3D: Release Date Delays, Price Rumors and Specs Information

LG Thrill 3D: Release Date Delays, Price Rumors and Specs Information
News from Video Gaming Pros:

The LG Thrill 3D 4G smartphone gets closer and closer to debuting, and despite its launch delays, it seems we know just about what we did when we reported to you previously. However, the August 21 release date and physical ship date for preorders seems solid. As with most preorders, a $ 50 deposit is made to reserve your phone and guarantee that you get one at retailers like Radio Shack. But, retailers generally oversell their stock levels, so make sure if you are interested that you preorder one now. That having been said, this is what we know.

The LG Thrill 4G offers the ability to view and interact with a 3D display without you having to wear heavy, expensive, Geordi La Forge-looking headgear. (A shout out to all my fellow Star Trek Next Generation friends!) And in doing so, the Thrill will only have one real rival, the HTC Evo 3D 4G handset. It was the first smartphone ever to make such technolog…………… continues on Video Gaming Pros

LG Thrill 4G vs Samsung Galaxy S2? AT&T’s first 3D phone delayed

LG Thrill 4G vs Samsung Galaxy S2? AT&T’s first 3D phone delayed
News from PopHerald.com:

AT&T wants to challenge the Galaxy S2 with a 3D LG phone?

New report has confirmed that AT&T is delaying the launch of the LG Thrill 4G.

Looks like LG fans need to wait for few more weeks because PC Magazine has confirmed that AT&T’s first 3D Android phone will not arrive online and in stores until August 21st. Apparently, the rescheduling of the Thrill 4G’s release was first heralded by a Radio Shack document leaked by Android Central claiming that instead of August 7th, 3D and Android fans must wait for at least 3 more weeks.

LG Thrill 4G is one of the most popular Android handsets this quarter, not only because it is AT&T’s first 3D Android handset, but also the phone’s surprisingly cheaper tag price of $ 99.99 only if bought with a 2 year AT&T contract. Under the hood, the LG Thrill 4G is powered by 1 GHz dual-core Texas Instruments-helmed OMAP4, which should allow LG to include the Netflix application out of the box.

LG Thrill 3D 4G Release Date, Specs Revealed
News from Video Gaming Pros:

It seems only a month or so ago the HTC EVO 3D 4G Sprint phone was the first-ever and only phone with 3D technology to grace a smartphone without the need of glasses. Well, it will always be the first ever, but it is alone no more. Consumer electronics, computer and phone manufacturer LG is about to release their LG Thrill 3D AT&T 4G smartphone, and it will join the Evo 3D 4G as the only two mobile phones to ever offer 3D without using glasses.

A recent picture of some LG and AT&T Thrill informational sheets sent to AT&T retailers lists a release date of July, with no further clarification. Far from ambiguous, this is a great announcement. Just last month, LG and AT&T were exclaiming “sometime this summer” as a debut for the Thrill, so with only 2 weeks left in July, this is a good sign.

Motorola Droid X2 Review
News from Digitaltrends.com:

In almost every respect, Motorola’s Droid X2 a better phone than the Droid X, which we gave high marks to one year ago. It has double the processing power, a better camera, and a higher resolution qHD display. However, the world of Android changes quickly. What is impressive one day is out of date the next. Motorola’s Droid has some great attributes and is not a bad phone, but in a few key ways, the device isn’t keeping up with the features and performance of its competitors. Let’s dig in.

Design

From a design perspective, nothing has changed between the Droid X and X2, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The original Droid X was thinner and larger than almost anything on the market. While the X2 doesn’t break new ground in size or thinness, it still…………… continues on Digitaltrends.com
