Target displays show that the LG Thrill 4G is going to be selling for $79.99 on-contract
It’s not surprising that our interest perked up when AT&T teased us about selling the 3D feature filled LG Thrill 4G for the mind-boggling on-contract price of $99.99 – albeit, rumors of delays might ruin the fun it’s expected to offer.

Interestingly, one of our tipsters managed to send us a couple of Target displays that show the handset being graced with an even better $79.99 on-contract pricing. However, the fine details at the bottom indicate the price is only valid between August 21st and 27th.

Previously, we reported that RadioShack was going to delay the handset’s launch until August 21st, which lines up with what we see here with Target’s plans, but more recently, another rumor mentions it being moved even further back to September 4th. So it’s unclear whether or not this Target display was created very recently.

Regardless of that, it’s nice to know that the popular retailer is going to give potential owners a $20 discount over what AT&T is planning to offer – but it’s anyone’s guess if it’ll actually come galloping into stores on August 21st.

Thanks Luke!

we already received the dummy displays for the Thrill. It wouldnt surprise me if we released it at Target on the 21st.. and yes RS already had it set at 79.99, Target Mobile kiosks are an extension of Radioshack...

Not very "Thrilled" about this at all. I'm more "Thrilled" about the Galaxy S2.
