The surprising aspect about this is that the Optimus 3D which got the Commission’s approval comes with support for T-Mobile’s AWS (1700 MHz) network.
This means the magenta carrier (which will belong to AT&T starting 2012) may have plans to launch the Optimus 3D in the US. Just yesterday, AT&T announced its own version of the smartphone, called LG Thrill 4G (pictured below), so why couldn’t T-Mobile do the same?
T-Mo already has two new LG Android devices – the G2X and the G-Slate. Will it really want to carry the Optimus 3D, too? We can’t know for sure, but that is definitely possible now that an AWS-friendly version of the handset exists.
