AT&T to sell phone with 3-D screen and camera

Mar 21, 2011 By PETER SVENSSON , AP Technology Writer

(AP) -- Hot on the heels of the Nintendo 3DS game device and its 3-D screen, AT&T plans to launch a smartphone with a 3-D screen and a dual-lens camera for 3-D snapshots.

AT&T Inc. said Monday that the LG Thrill 4G will be released within in the next few months. It didn't say what the touch screen phone would cost.

The Thrill will run Google Inc.'s Android software and will be able to play games and YouTube clips in 3-D, AT&T says.

The screen won't require glasses for 3-D. That's much like the Nintendo 3DS, which goes on sale Sunday in the U.S. for $250.

T-Mobile USA has already said it will sell a tablet computer from LG that can shoot 3-D video. However, it won't have a 3-D screen.
