AT&T releases rebranded HTC HD7 and new LG Thrill 4G

Htc-hd7s When AT&T announced that it was the premier carrier for Microsoft's then-new Windows Phone 7 operating system, people were severely disappointed to find out that the carrier got the raw end of the deal. T-Mobile and some of Europe's carriers got the more high-end devices, and most of AT&T's offerings were either ridiculous or cheaply made

Today, that changes.

AT&T has announced the release of two devices. First there's the WP7-based HTC HD7S. It's basically the same thing that AT&T's new best friend T-Mobile has already, just with an "S" tacked on at the end. I have a slight suspicion that maybe AT&T was forced to release this device later rather than at the beginning because of T-Mobile's exclusivity. 

Then, there's the LG Thrill 4G. This device runs Android 2.2 and will sport a dual-core 1GHz processor and a 3D camera, which, when the 3D function is turned off, can actually record in 1080p high-definition. Of course, what good is a 3D camera without a 3D screen? Well, that's why the Thrill has one. 

Expect to see the HD7S by the end of April and the Thrill 4G by the beginning of summer.
