The AT&T LG Thrill 4G took forever to get to market, but it looks like they are going to price this thing right to move. AT&T wants $99.99 for it, but we already know Target and Radio Shack will offer it for $79.99.
Now we are hearing Costco will sell it for $29.99. It is not supposed to launch until September 4th, but it appears that it has already shown up in some stores (Kansas and Missouri). Even if you have to wait until Sunday, $29.99 seems like a more than reasonable price for this one, especially if you are wanting to get a 3D phone. Who is planning on buying this one?
We’ve talked about the LG Thrill 4G (or the Optimus 3D) here at Talk Android many times before. Sadly, what looks to be an awesome phone on AT&T will apparently be delayed a bit, according to a leaked Radio Shack memo given by a tipster to the folks at Android Central. The memo details no reasons for the delay, but does say that pre-orders will continue until August 15th. This means if you were eagerly awaiting to have a Thrill of your own, you’ll have to wait a little longer, sorry.

The LG Optimus 3D was easily one of the most exciting devices, both spec wise and features, from MWC 2011 in February. Not much word has come out since about where the device will be headed in the US until now. AT&T has made a brief press release stating the launch of the LG Optimus 3D, but it will be called the LG Thrill 4G with AT&T.
No official word on pricing or release date as of yet from AT&T, but that said, we’re sure it’ll be mentioned over the next few days as the pressure builds. For a good look at the LG Thrill 4G (Optimus 3D), click here for our view from MWC.
