AT&T LG Thrill 4G delayed again, Sept. 4 new date from leaked docs

The LG Thrill 4G, AT&T's next (hopefully) Android smartphone has once again been delayed, this time the date is pushed back until September 4.  As mentioned in the document you see above, the Thrill was to ship to third party stores (in this case, Radio Shack) on August 21, but that's not going to be happening. 

We have no idea why the phone keeps being delayed, but it's something we're used to by now.  There's also the small matter that AT&T never announced a release date, only "this Summer".  It will be released when it's ready.  Hopefully the extra time means a better product out the door.

Thanks, Anon!

  • I don't care about the Thrill. I want the HTC Holiday
  • Buy now let's be serious does anyone really care. It will release with 2.2 Froyo anyway I could see if these delays existed because it would launch with 2.3.3 gingerbread. At&t and LG bad combination definitely this would've been a great 3D device to add to the industry leading my beloved HTC EVO 3D. Nothing is better
  • LOL industry leading? Says who? You? Sorry but the Galaxy S 2 destroys the EVO 3D. Even the Photon is better. I love how you always have to mention the EVO 3D in every sentence you type lol. Even on topics that has nothing to do with the damn phone. Stop sounding like a broken record already.
  • You may think the GS2 is better than the EVO 3D. You may think that the Photon destroys the Evo 3D. That's your opinion and I respect that. However that does not change the merit of the OP's statement. In many ways, the Evo 3D is "industry leading". How? Because the GS2 has yet to be released on US soil. That means more Americans have an Evo 3D than the GS2 at present. Furthermore, The Evo 3D is way more popular than the Photon 4G (As indicated in the Readers Choice votes). Actually, I think its safe to assume that the Evo 3D is the most popular Android phone to be released this year so far! Taken these things into consideration and adding in the fact that at present, the Evo 3D is the ONLY 3D CAPABLE smart phone in the US right now... That makes it industry leading... Sorry, but facts are facts... :/
  • Well excuse me. When the GS2 comes out, EVO 3D will be a mere memory. Photon is better sorry and I'm an HTC guy. EVO 3D is not as popular as you think. If that was the case, more people would have upgraded to it. 3D is a gimmick at best. If this is industry leading.....then I feel sorry for the industry. This phone has not made the impact that the original EVO made last year. Yeah facts are facts. :)
  • It's good that they're delaying it again. It's definitely not ready for prime time. I'm having so many issues with mine at the moment. I mean a phone should not take 5+ seconds for the screen to come on when you press that power button. That's ridiculous. Several times when pressing the 3D button and then choosing 3D camera I've had it just hang on a black screen where it doesn't do anything. Also, I've had it do the same thing when going into the settings menu. The current software that's on it right now was compiled in May if I'm not mistaken. They need to do one of two things; release a huge maintenance release before launch or just get a working version of Gingerbread before release.
  • One of my friends actually had this phone at drill yesterday. He works for AT&T & said the manager gave it to him. He told me about it but i doubted him until he pulled it out. Nice display & solid phone. It did seem to run a little slow though & the 3D video would be choppy at times. I thought it was cool because i rarely see phones prior to release but wasnt totally amazed because i use Verizon & i have very little depth perception so 3D gives me serious headaches LOL. After i told him it was cool to have a prerelease, he went on a hype binge with everyone about it........
  • Ive gave on waiting for this phone!!! I got me a samsung infuse 4G, rooted it,, never been happier ;)
  • Really glad I didn't tell my older brother to keep waiting on this phone.
  • Its gotten to the point now I don't even want this phone anymore at first I did but now they have waited so long to release it I don't care anymore I'm going to hold out for the htc holiday.
  • These delays are not device related, as the demo units have been sitting in stores for weeks now. I don't get it.
  • It would surprise me if they made the announcement of September 18 of the ATT LG THRILL 4G coming out. Autumn doesn't start till the September 23. Will att keep to there word of it being out in the summer?
