AT&T intros LG Phoenix and LG Thrive Android phones (Optimus One versions)
AT&T has finally announced its own LG Optimus One, becoming the last major US carrier to do so.
Of course, like all other carriers, AT&T customized the handset, and will offer it under two names: LG Thrive, and LG Phoenix.
The two devices are basically the same (only their colors differ), but the Phoenix is offered to postpaid customers, while the Thrive will be AT&T’s “first Android smartphone available for GoPhone users.”
The Phoenix and Thrive feature Android 2.2, a 3.2 inch HVGA multi-touch display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, Exchange email support, 3.5mm headset jack, 3.2MP camera, 2GB memory card pre-installed, and 600MHz processor.
Available starting April 17, the LG Phoenix will be sold for $49.99 with a new 2-yr agreement. Launching the same day, the LG Thrive will cost $179.99, and “AT&T is introducing a new prepaid data package with the handset, offering 500 MB of data for $25.”
