LG Thrill 4G Delayed Til End of August

That fancy new 4G device with glasses-free 3D known as the LG Thrill 4G, yea apparently it’s getting delayed for a few more weeks. A few weeks back we saw a leaked RadioShack memo claiming August 7th was the release date as well as the amazing price of just $80 dollars. Now we are hearing slightly different info and if it indeed is delayed that would be a shame.

Just a few days ago it was live on the AT&T website showing it was headed to stores “in the coming weeks”– weeks being multiple that counts out RadioShack’s August 7th release date. Now new reports are suggesting that AT&T has delayed the phone and we wont see it until the end of August, some are claiming August 21st but that has yet to be officially confirmed.

The LG Thrill 4G is the sweet dual-core glasses-free 3D device headed to AT&T and we were able to get it early for you so check out our Thrill 4G hands-on video. If you don’t want to wait we’ve already reviewed its twin brother the Optimus 3D as well right here.

For now we don’t have anything official other than a leaked Radio Shack screenshot suggesting the delay, hopefully AT&T or LG will come out with an official word in the coming days to clear up the confusion. In the mean time I’d go pre-order the phone because its only $80 from RadioShack and it will be $99 from AT&T (new contracts of course). This is a pretty great price for what you get, take that EVO 3D.

Logitech Revue Now Just $99

In a recent earnings call by Logitech they announced that the Revue wasn’t selling so hot and it would be getting a steep price drop.

In a recent earnings call by Logitech they announced that the Revue wasn’t selling so hot and it would be getting a steep price drop. Today that has finally happened and now you can get the highly functional device for only $99. It originally launched for $299 at places like Best Buy so this is a pretty huge discount.

The Logitech Revue has seen its share of issues and some might question its purpose but streaming Netflix, Pandora Radio and watching YouTube from your living room has never been easier with the Revue. You can see its insides in this teardown for an idea of the hardware. It is available for the new $99 price right now at logitech.com

Oh and if you haven’t seen them yet you must watch the Kevin Bacon Revue Commercial, and the commercial part 2 as it was equally creepy and awesome at the same time. The Revue should see Android Ice Cream along with other devices and recently the Google TV Fishtank program leaked if you’ve already got one and would like to check things out.

We wont talk about how much use the device will get or not, instead here is the link so you can head over and buy one.

AT&T to begin throttling top 5% of unlimited data users

ATT Throttle

If you are one of the lucky AT&T users who were able to lock into that awesome unlimited data plan before they changed over to their tiered structure — and also happen to use more data than AT&T thinks is reasonable under that plan — be prepared for some potentially slower speeds. AT&T has announced that starting Oct. 1, it is going to begin to throttle the top 5 percent of the data consumers, stating that they are using on average 12 times as much data as other customers. Keep in mind, nothing to freak out over here, but if you are one of those who stream all day, and tether all night, be prepared to notice some slower speeds in the coming months.

Developers fuming over missing app comments; Google says it’s looking into it

Android Central App

We’ve been watching what’s become a bit of a thing the past several days in the Android Market. Developers have seen a significant number of comments disappear from their app listings — hundreds, at times. And for developers, app ratings and comments are lifeblood. While we don’t think anyone would complain if the one-star trolling comments (you know who you are) would disappear, five-star comments have been caught up in the purge as well.

The "good" news, if there is any here, is that a Googler has responded to a support thread, saying:

We’re aware of this issue and working to resolve it as quickly as we can. I’ll post a follow-up message when I have additional information to share with you.

No ETA on when the comments might be restored, however, and we’ve put in word with Google, seeking a more official response.

Sprint Motorola Photon 4G available today

Sprint Motorola Photon 4G

Today’s the day, folks. The Motorola Photon 4G is now available in Sprint stores and online. And if you couldn’t tell from Part 1 of our Photon 4G review, we’re slightly over the moon about this one. Between the 4.3-inch touchscreen (Pentile display notwithstanding), dual-core 1GHz processor and that it’s running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, plays Netflix out of the box — and has Sprint’s Wimax data — it’s quickly found itself as our new favorite on Sprint.

It’s going to be quite the battle between the Photon 4G and the HTC EVO, that’s for sure. On the fence? We’ve got answers in our EVO 3D and Photon 4G forums.

Logitech Revue hits its promised $99 price point

Logitech Revue

Logitech announced in its earnings call last week that its Revue Google TV set-top box would get a deep discount to $99 — that’s $200 off what it initially sold for — and that pricing is now in effect. Logitech’s site actually still says $299. But add the Revue to your cart, and it can be had for $99.

We can argue about functionality and usefulness all day. But for access to Pandora, Netflix, a full browser, Youtube’s sweet "Leanback" display, Amazon’s movies and a handful of other features, $99’s pretty tough to beat.

Purchase: Logitech Revue; Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
