23 Mar

Just yesterday, AT&T announced that they’d be snatching up LG’s Optimus 3D and bringin’ it stateside as the “Thrill 4G” — and today at CTIA, Sprint’s following up with the announcement of the second 3D smartphone in the US, the EVO 3D.

Even if 3D isn’t your thing, though, the specs on these electronic gadgets definitely make it worth lookin’ at. Follow us behind the jump for the details.

Here’s what we know:

Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with HTC Sense
Dual-Core 1.2 GHZ CPU
4.3 inch, glasses-free 3D display running at 960×540
Not one, not two, but three cameras: two 5 megapixel cameras on the back (for 3D stereoscopic images), and a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front

AT&T Gets Two New Toys: The HTC HD7S and the LG Thrill 4

23 Mar

Look at these two new tech gadgets, as follows:

HTC HD7S:

You know the T-Mobile HTC HD7? Take it (and its 1 GHZ CPU, 5 megapixel camera, 4.3″ display, and Windows-Phone-7-poweredness) and bump the screen up to a super LCD. Oh, and add a fancy S at the end. That’s the HD7S.

LG Thrill 4G:

Finally! A glasses-free 3D smartphone comes to the US! Everyone was waiting for that, right? .. right? Anyone?

Ah well — Love it or Hate it, the 3D smartphone train is a comin’, and it looks like AT&T’s going to be first off the block. It’s got a dual 5-megapixel camera setup for 3D stereoscopic photos, a dual-core 1GHZ CPU, 16 gigs of internal storage (plus 8 GB included out of the box on microSD), and HDMI out. It’s runnin Android 2.2

Alas, AT&T makes no mention of price nor specific dating for either handset, outside of saying the HD7S will launch (in the coming weeks.)

AT&T Releases First US 3D Smartphone: LG Thrill 4G

23 Mar

AT&T is really trying to up the ante this week. The company already made news on Monday with its $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile; now it’s earning bragging rights as the first US provider to offer a 3D smartphone.

The carrier says that its LG Thrill 4G will be out in the “coming months” and will feature a dual five-megapixel camera capable of shooting both 3D photos and high-definition 720p video. Also available to LG Thrill owners is a library of 3D content in the form of photos, video clips, and games by way of the “LG 3D Space.” Other specs of these electronic gadgets include a 4.3-inch display, dual-core 1GHz processor, 16GB of flash memory, and HDMI output. Based on what we know so far, it sounds like the LG Thrill is a version of LG’s Optimus 3D, which is set to roll out in Europe sometime during the second quarter.

No word yet on how much the phone will cost, but I suspect it won’t be cheap. I’m curious to see how the 3D technology affects the phone’s battery life (a problem already plaguing the Nindendo 3DS), or if owners will be walking around with motion sickness, headaches, and blurry vision.
