LG Thrill 4G Hands-on

CTIA has brought the 3D hype to the next level with two new devices featuring support for the third dimension, but in the light of the recent AT&T-Mobile merger AT&T's LG Thrill 4G is what may end up in many pockets. You might be fooled by the new name, but the LG Thrill 4G is nothing else but a re-branded LG Optimus 3D, which you should be pretty familiar with. It uses the same glasses-free parallax display technology on a 4.3-inch screen with a pretty standard resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The dual 5-megapixel camera setup on the back will bring you 720p HD videos in 3D and 1080p full HD in 2D.

This 4G-capable powerhouse comes with a noticeable heft – it has a weight of 5.93 ounces (168 g), which you can definitely feel. But even the design isn't final yet and could change in the couple of months before the device actually hits shelves.

On the inside, though, the dual-core TI OMAP 4430 is one of the most powerful chipsets out there just cracking the benchmarks. The Thrill 4G will unfortunately be launched with Android Froyo, instead of the latest Gingerbread version. It also comes with eight pre-installed applications making use of the 3D capabilities of the device including the 3D Gallery as well as a 3D Game & Apps portal, along with all four gaming titles: Asphalt 6, Gulliver's Travels, Lets Golf 2 and NOVA.
