Costco is planning to stir things up with the LG Thrill 4G by pricing it at $29.99?

It looks like Costco might be beating everyone to the punch as they intend on selling the phone on launch day for the ridiculous price of only $29.99! Specifically, we’re being told that new (primary line) and existing customers with qualified upgrades...

That price is worth it for a high end ANDROID. Problem is that the model is LG. Hopefully, this is the best ANDROID phone to date for LG.

lol, yeah:
LG Thrill 4G, is the first US version of the LG Optimus 3D. It features a glasses-free 4.3" parallax barrier LCD display with 480x800 pixels, blazing fast 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP4 chipset, and two 5MP cameras on the back that allow for stereoscopic stills and video capture. The frame rate is 30fps for 1080p Full HD in 2D mode, and 24fps for the 720p HD 3D video capture.

The Revolution was decent. If the Thrill is pretty good, LG can hang their hats on a couple of solid efforts. Does kinda bother me is cut down in price to start with so much, though. Gonna be compared to EVO 3D from the moment it hits stores on. Tough competition.

6. Whar is the full price for the (unregistered)

I am tired of all these ads or article that always make a big deal about a new plan or upgrade prices for new phones, how about the rest of us that already have a plan?

Please tell me both prices? I am planning on buying the Thrill for the full price, so which retailer is giving the best deal? COSTCO, RADIOSHACK, ATT, ETC?

Also, does anyone knows for sure which version of Android ATT is going to release with? 2.2 or 2.3.4? I have heard that the major delay was due to the upgrade to gigerbread?

Another question, what is the differences from the original LG Optimus 3D? I bought one and I love it, but it does not get 3G speeds in the USA very well.
Thank you

Costco always has the best in store pricing. They also take there tax off the "warehouse" price, not the retail price. So for example, the droid incredible 2 is 49.99 and the tax is off 99.99 not 500+. plus they always give the free accessory package.
