LG Thrill 4G shows up in Target circular, sports an $80 price tag

13

While we still aren't sure exactly when the LG Thrill 4G will be showing up for sale, or the reason for the delays, we know it will cost 80 dollars if you pick it up from Target on a new line or have a qualifying update available, or a healthy $550 if you buy it outright.  If you haven't been paying attention, the Thrill 4G runs Froyo on an OMAP4 dual-core CPU, has dual channel RAM and a dual channel board configuration, nifty stereoscopic glasses free 3D, and if AT&T hasn't pulled any shenanigans, is a sure bet for inclusion in CyanogenMod's stable of devices. 

We've handled the thing numerous times, and we all know it's coming.  What it being in the coming week's Target advertisement means is anyone's guess.

LG Optimus Sol press images revealed, looks like another stylish mid-range phone from LG

12

Press shots for the LG Optimus Sol have leaked out, and while it's not going to be a groundbreaking device in the specs department, LG is delivering some very clean lines and a nice looking Android handset with this one.  Rumored to have a 1GHz single core CPU, front and rear cameras, Wifi direct, and LG's first AMOLED display checking in at 3.8 inches, it should be a solid performer.  After seeing these press photos, it looks like LG is following the trend they began with the Optimus Black, and offering a phone that looks as good as it runs.  No unsightly bumps or bulges, no NASCAR-esque labels and graphics plastered all over the back, and no big protruding buttons. 

While there's no word on when or where we may be seeing this one, it will certainly appeal to those who are looking for Android power in a sexy shell.

Samsung Galaxy Precedent coming to Straight Talk

31

Straight Talk, the TracPhone MVNO featured nationwide at WalMart locations, is introducing the Samsung Galaxy Precedent, the latest prepay from Samsung, and it very closely resembles the Boost Mobile Prevail.  We can't be sure the innards are the same, but we also can't see Samsung building a completely different model at these price points -- $150 with no contract and on Straight Talk's $45 monthly unlimited plan.  Straight Talk uses the T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon networks, so we're not exactly sure if this is a GSM or CDMA device, but we are sure it looks like a bargain and should make for an excellent phone for the value shoppers out there.  We've got a short promo video after the break, and you can sign up to stay in the loop at the source link.

Viewsonic takes a moment to kick webOS while it's down, reminds us it makes Android and Windows tablets

45

And those three little birds looked so innocent. ... Viewsonic this afternoon penned a few paragraphs to remind us all that it still makes Windows and Android tablets amid the demise of webOS hardware, saying "From our business-focused Windows solutions with Android integration to our multimedia-optimized consumer offerings, ViewSonic has delivered a diverse tablet portfolio that addresses a wide range of individual needs."

Oh, and it and basically twisted the knife in the back of anyone whose at all cared about webOS. Viewsonic trumpeted Windows over Android in its press release -- no real surprise, we suppose -- but we're a little surprised and just how low a blow it leveled against our reeling webOS brethren.

“HP’s move to launch a tablet with an unknown OS appears to have presented a challenge in marketing their tablet solution. The webOS, unfamiliar to both consumers and enterprises, complicated the tablet sales process and thus deemed a failed experiment.

Harsh, but true.

If your interested in details about the release, including the pricing, sign up for information at T-Mobile UK -- see the source link.  Samsung, please bring this stateside!

Sprint Mobile IP Relay app alludes to Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung M930, and Kyocera Oblique

20

A quick peek at the description for the Sprint Mobile IP Relay app, designed to allow users with hearing disabilities to place relay calls using text on Android phones, gives us a look at some upcoming devices -- Notably the Samsung Galaxy S II.  Listed along side things we know and love like the Optimus S and HTC EVO 4G, we see the Galaxy everyone is aching for, as well as the mid-range Samsung M930 (a qwerty slider said to be heading to Boost Mobile) and the decidedly low-end Kyocera Oblique.

Nothing here is really new -- and anyone can put anything they want in their app's description. But seeing it in print -- err pixels -- is bound to make more than a few happy.  The Galaxy S II is coming, and I know quite a few folks on Sprint ready for it.

Another Gingerbread build leaks for the HTC Thunderbolt

12

Another day, another Gingerbread leak for the HTC Thunderbolt.  This time around everyone's favorite Russian mystery man Football provides us with the 2.10.605.1 build in RUU form.  If you're feeling brave, you can download the file from the source link and install it yourself, or you can play it safe and wait for more feedback.  Of course if you're riding the root train, you'll want to wait for your favorite developer to get his hands on the files and cook up something wonderful.  That won't take too long, it never does.
