AT&T debuts LG Thrive, its first prepaid smartphone

by Shalu Pillai

AT&T has launched its first prepaid smartphone – the Android 2.2-based LG Thrive. Without competing with their other AT&T’s smartphones like the Motorola Atrix 4G or the iPhone 4, the new GoPhone offerings include a 3.2-inch color full-touch display, Wifi, exchange email support, and a 3.2-MP camera. Customers will have unlimited Wifi access at AT&T Wifi hotspots nationwide while data plan options consist of $5 for 10MB, $15 for 10MB and a new choice: $25 for 500MB. For phone calls, buyers can opt between the Smartphone $0.10/min Plan or Smartphone $2/day Unlimited Talk and Text Plan.

AT&T will also offer a contracted-version, known as the LG Phoenix. It’s essentially the same phone as the Thrive, except with a dark blue exterior and a two-year service agreement at a $49.99 price tag, whereas the silver Thrive will retail for $179.99 and contract freedom. The devices are expected to roll out on April 17.
