LG Optimus 3D gains FCC's approval with T-Mo's frequencies
We probably should have expected that, right? After AT&T announced its plans to buy T-Mobile, now it becomes clear that the LG Optimus 3D, which is to be released by AT&T with the LG Thrill 4G name, has received FCC's approval with T-Mo's bands. In all honesty, we have absolutely no idea whether this has anything to do with the proposed AT&T buyout of T-Mobile, but the facts speak for themselves.

Usually, when a device visits the FCC, its launch is imminent, so we can expect some kind of big announcement from Magenta in the coming days and weeks. As of now, it's officially known that T-Mo is to offer two upcoming LG devices - the LG Optimus G2x (our hands-on here) and the T-Mobile G-Slate (hands-on).

Well, considering these types of deals are made months ahead of time and the Tmo buyout was finalized until recently, I'd say this has nothing to do with the buyout.

the optimus 3d has always been rumored to be a Tmobile phone. Thats nothing new and nothing to do with the buyout. If it were engineered with the buyout in mind, it would have both ATT and Tmobile frequencies in it.

Nak, the tmo buyout isnt anywhere near finalized. It was "announced as an intention to buy". It still has to clear the hurdles the FCC throws at it before it can be finalized.
