AT&T’s LG Thrill 4G was announced back in March, and it’s basically the carrier’s own version of the LG Optimus 3D, the world’s first 3D-capable Android-powered smartphone. Five months have passed since the unveiling, and you still can’t purchase a Thrill 4G.
Last month, AT&T decided to finally announce the pricing for the device, and it’s quite decent at $99.99 with a new two-year contract. Also then, the carrier said that the LG smartphone would be out soon. And according to a memo from Radio Shack, that ‘soon’ meant on August 21.
So those of you who want to get a 3D smartphone on contract with AT&T have patiently waited thus far and are happy that in just five long days you’ll be able to get your hands on one. Right? Wrong.
Enter Radio Shack one more time, with another leaked internal memo. The document clearly states that the LG Thrill 4G has been delayed yet again. It was first supposed to launch on August 7, which then got changed into August 21, and now the release date has been pushed back all the way to September 4.
Furthermore, because of this delay, Radio Shack decided to stop taking pre-orders for the Thrill 4G. Those of you who’ve already pre-ordered one will still have a phone reserved when stock finally arrives at Radio Shack.
So back to the waiting game it is, folks.
