LG Thrill delayed

This just rolled in from a tipster, and it looks like you folks waiting for AT&T to release the LG Thrill 4G might have to wait just a bit longer.  According to this internal memo from Radio Shack, the thrill has been put on hold until Aug. 21.  The Shack will continue to take pre-orders for the dual-core 3D handset until Aug. 15, and those of you that already have yours on order should be getting word from Radio Shack about the delay soon. 

No clue as to why it's being delayed -- and maybe this is just for Radio Shack and AT&T proper will release it sooner. Or, maybe they decided to throw one more party (actually, Gameloft has one scheduled for Aug. 10).  If you have any better theories, check out the hands-on and talk it up in the Thrill 4G forums!

Thanks, anon!

I'm very happy that I chose the EVO 3D/Sprint over this phone. My data speeds are slower at the moment now but I'm paying much less $$. Waiting for the Thrill 4G would've been a BIG mistake, all the while shelling out piles of money on AT&T!

>i already pre-ordered mine... the guy at shack told me that yesterday...
>and i hope the delay is so they can give them all Gingerbread right off the bat...
>that, coupled with the the cheap price and the dual channel technology and the ability to convert 2d content to 3d actively.... will make this a great competitor to the evo 3d

My brother works at AT&T. He got to bring home the Thrill today to learn about it.
He was told they are releasing it August 7th.

He is a little walkthrough video of it.
It was 2.2.2 on it.

2.2.2? Serious? After the delays you've been going through, 2.2.2 is all they could muster up? Besides, if the thrill is anything like the LG HDTV I bought for my daughter, I feel sorry for you folks fondeling your kohonas for this device to be released. This makes me happy I'm a Sprint customer.
