LG Thrill 4G
The LG Thrill 4G will be exclusive to AT&T customers and reach AT&T stores in the coming months. Running the first dual-core, dual-channel 1 GHz processor in the U.S. and based on the Android 2.2 platform, LG Thrill 4G will be among the first to deliver a glasses-free 3D experience to U.S. customers and will allow users to shoot 3D video and 3D stills with the dual 5-megapixel stereoscopic camera. In addition to apps and games from Android Market, LG Thrill 4G will offer 3D content via the “LG 3D Space,” which houses 3D games, video clips and images for quick, convenient access.
Preloaded with 16 GB of memory (8 GB onboard plus an 8 GB MicroSD card), the LG Thrill 4G will record 3D video at 720p resolution and 2D at 1080p quality. The smartphone will be able to play video back in high definition through the HDMI-out port on the device or stream content wirelessly through DLNA technology.
The HTC HD7S will be the largest screen on a Windows Phone from AT&T and will include the latest version of Windows Phone software that offers many new benefits including the ability to copy and paste text. A powerful 1 GHz processor will power the unique Windows Phone experience and any of the more than 10,000 applications available for download or purchase from Windows Marketplace. In addition, with the preloaded U-verse® Mobile application, qualifying AT&T U-verse customers can download and watch hit TV shows on their Windows Phone. Non-U-verse customers can subscribe to U-verse Mobile for $9.99 a month and choose from a broad selection of programming to watch on their Windows Phone. This new AT&T smartphone will be the first HD7 model from HTC in the U.S. with an improved super LCD high resolution display. The HTC HD7S will be available in company-owned AT&T retail locations and online at www.wireless.att.com in the coming weeks.
First of all, the graphic with the album art of Dream theater is pure awesomeness!!! But 4g on ATT? Thats a joke. The phone is awesome, but i mean will the cap the upload speed like they do on all their other 4g phones? ATT makes me sick.
Much like the TV's I don't get the point of 3D on something small really. I mean wow we can play angry birds in live 3D. I imagine .25 inch 3D birds will just be absolutely amazing.
Well I'm waiting for the EVO 3D to come out. Faster cpu (dual core 1.2) and 2.3.
Smooth Creations LANShark "Blue Flame" + ASUS G750JZ
CPU: e6400 @ 3.2 (H-50'd)MB: MSI p6nRAM: 4G adataGPU: GTS-450 and 8800GTS for PhysxHDD: WD 500G BlackPSU: 620W Corsair Mod.Case: 900-2 with 7 cathodes and AP-15sOS: W7 and Ubuntu
There wont be any more phones with 2.3, its going to skip right to 2.4 and will be optimized for dual cores
I guess I just dont see the need fr 3d in such small applications. A 50" TV is about the smallest Id go

G.Skill Ripjaws X 16gb PC2133
Asus Blu-ray burner
Seasonic X650 PSU
Patriot Pyro 128gb SSD
I can think of one way that you'd go smaller. 23" to be exact
i7 950 - ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme - ASUS GTX 570 - AZZA Hurricane - 6 GB Corsair 1600 - Corsair AX750 - WD 1tb black Thank You HH!!!!!!
AMD 1090T - MSI 890FXA-GD70 - XFX HD5850 x2 - CM Storm Scout - 8GB Kingston HyperX 1600 - Corsair HX850 - Sammy spinpoint f3
Really, here are the official announced specs.
Meh Ill wait for the Samsung Galaxy S2 with even better specs than these or the Evo 3D ! Best phone on the block FTW.
would be neat to have the 3d at hand, but it isn't a really needed feature at all.
@lifeskill HA! :D
It'll be interesting to see how 3D affects battery life on these new 3D phones that are coming out
Lol good point Lifeskills. I am thinking of the same thing soldier 1969 is though the S2 even compared to the new EVO 3D and the Nexus S and the Thunderbolt looks like the ticket to me. Unluckily I may have to UG b4 it gets here.
if you were afraid of texting and driving, this thing is gonna cause accidents.
That is a good point HHGrrl I was thinking about that the other day. I would imagine the hardware much like regular camera's automatically shut down when not in use. Plus many of them use newer memory and dual core or more modern processors which are also better at managing energy use. With no direct testing on it yet really though we don not know exactly, although I would imagine we will by the end of next week.
@HHGrrl: Well if you want an example, check out the Nintendo 3DS. Turning on the 3D would impact it's battery life severly.
This is why I don't think 3D is ready for phones. Like everybody else says, it should stay on computer monitors and TV's for now.
