AT&T announces the LG Thrive and LG Phoenix, available April 17th

AT&T just announced two new devices for their ever-growing Android lineup. They’re the LG Thrive (right) and the LG Phoenix (left). Both phones are based on the LG Optimus One, the little popular device we can buy from every carrier that ever existed. The LG Thrive is AT&T’s first prepaid smartphone, it’ll be available for $179.99 without a contract. A $179.99 price tag might seem a little steep for this phone, until you realize that you’re saving a lot of moolah on the long term by going the prepaid route. The second phone, the LG Phoenix, will be available for $49.99 with a new two-year contract. Whether you’re going with a prepaid plan or a contract, both of these phones are very good options if you don’t have a small fortune to spend on a new phone. Here’s a summary of these phones specs:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • A 320 x 480 pixels, 3.2 inches screen
  • A 170 MB ROM, 512 MB RAM
  • 3.2 MP camera
  • 600 MHz ARM 11 processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset
  • FM Radio

As an LG Optimus T owner, I can vouch for both of these phones. They might not be the Atrix 4G but they’re very responsive, pack vanilla Android and get the job done. Accompanying these new phones, AT&T also announced some new prepaid data plans; starting with $25 for 500MB, $15 for 100MB, and $5 for 10MB. What do you guys think about these phones?
