AT&T Introduces the HTC HD7S and the LG Thrill
by Mark R
Just to let you know, I am at CTIA Spring 2011 in Orlando, Florida. CTIA is a big tradeshow where many of the mobile tech-related business put themselves on display. It would appear that AT&T has jumped the gun with big mobile announcements as they unveiled two new phones that they will carry.
The first is the Thrill from LG, and its most unique feature is that it does 3D. Users can shoot 3D videos or stills with the 5 Megapixel camera, and watch them on the glasses-free 3D 4.3 inch screen. It also features a dual-core 1GHz processor, 4G capability, with Android 2.2 (possibly 2.3 later).
The second is the HTC HD7S, and it is a Windows 7 phone. It also has the 1GHz processor as well as a 5 Megapixel camera. The screen is in 2D, but it is a 4.3 inch WVGA super LCD high resolution display.
I don’t seem to have any word on when the LG Thrill will be released, nor a price. The word on the HTC HD7S is that it will be out at AT&T retails locations as well as the company website “sometime within the next few weeks”. I’m not certain on the price of the HD7S, but it does come pre-loaded with a U-verse Mobile application which allows the user to download an watch TV shows, and this service costs $9.99 a month. On a somewhat related note, users of the LG Thrill can enjoy downloading 3D content with “LG 3D Space” for videos, images, and games.
