Man! Here I am sitting in the airport on the way to CTIA, and the news is already breakin’. Lookin’ to get in before any noise that the show might generate and possibly ride the tide of their absolutely monstrous merger with T-Mobile, AT&T has just announced that they’re picking up two new toys: the Windows Phone 7 powered HD7S, and the Android-powered, glasses-free 3D-enabled LG Thrill 4G.
Hop behind the ol’ jump for all the deets*.
You know the T-Mobile HTC HD7? Take it (and its 1 GHZ CPU, 5 megapixel camera, 4.3″ display, and Windows-Phone-7-poweredness) and bump the screen up to a super LCD. Oh, and add a fancy S at the end. That’s the HD7S.
LG Thrill 4G:
Finally! A glasses-free 3D smartphone comes to the US! Everyone was waiting for that, right? .. right? Anyone?
Ah well — Love it or Hate it, the 3D smartphone train is a comin’, and it looks like AT&T’s going to be first off the block. It’s got a dual 5-megapixel camera setup for 3D stereoscopic photos, a dual-core 1GHZ CPU, 16 gigs of internal storage (plus 8 GB included out of the box on microSD), and HDMI out. It’s runnin Android 2.2
Alas, AT&T makes no mention of price nor specific dating for either handset, outside of saying the HD7S will launch (in the coming weeks.)
* Yeah, I said deets. Cut me some slack; I could have gone with “411”.
