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 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.
