Target circular shows LG Thrill 4G with $79.99 price tag
We aren't terribly shocked to see the LG Thrill 4G in the latest Target circular, priced at $79.99 with a signed 2-year contract. No, it has nothing to do with being so hardened that nothing surprises us anymore. Actually, as we reported last week, a picture of a display for the retailer showed that it planned on offering the 3D enabled handset for that price. While the circular confirms the price, the next step is to find out the launch date.

Originally planned for a release yesterday, the latest news on a release date that we have told you is to expect the phone to launch on September 4th. That news came from a leaked Radio Shack document that seemed to point to AT&T as the decision-maker behind the delay.

The stereoscopic handset (a fancy way of saying that you don't need special glasses to view the 3D effect) has already toured Europe as the LG Optimus 3D. In the States, the LG Thrill 4G will hook up with AT&T's HSPA+ network, hence the 4G in the phone's title. Under the hood is a 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP4 processor while Android 2.2 runs the show. 512MB of RAM is aboard while the dual 5MP cameras on back capture video in 1080p at 30fps for 2D and 720p at 24fps for 3D. 8GB of storage comes on the LG Thrill 4G with expansion to 40GB possible using the microSD slot.

As you can see in the circular, besides having to tie yourself up for 2 years with AT&T to get the subsidized pricing for the LG Thrill 4G, you need to commit to at least a $15 per month data plan. The handset without the contract is priced at $549.99.

The data plan would be on the line regardless of contract or not, which is more or less standard policy for post-2009 US smartphones
