AT&T to load LG Thrill 4G with Qik, extra 3D content

updated 06:25 pm EDT, Wed June 22, 2011

LG Thrill 4G first ATT phone to have Qik and 3D

AT&T this morning gave further details of the LG Thrill 4G that included a handful of first for the carrier. The 3D Android phone better known as the Optimus 3D will be AT&T's first to come with Qik preloaded and, like devices from the past year, will have two-way video chat out of the box. Unlike at other US carriers loading the app, though, AT&T's service will be at least officially relegated to use on Wi-Fi.

The dual-core device should also come with a "leading suite" of 3D content to take advantage of its glasses-free visuals. Whether any movies would be involved wasn't said, although it will have 3D-aware versions of Gameloft's Asphalt 6, Let's Golf 2, and NOVA along with a 3D-specific Gameloft store and 3D movies from mSpot. It remains one of the few mobile devices to support YouTube 3D.

Despite the time interval, it will still ship with Android 2.2. AT&T still hasn't given a release date or a price but has promised that the Thrill 4G should be in stores before the end of the summer.
