Back on Thursday, we gave you pictures of the LG Nitro HD, AT&T's first 720p LTE phone. Now, US readers can see the Android 2.3-powered smartphone for themselves — it's selling for $249.99 with a two-year AT&T contract, or $599.99 without. Beyond its high-definition screen and next-generation data connection, the 4.5-inch phone has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of internal memory, and two cameras: a 1.3-megapixel on the front and an 8-megapixel rear shooter capable of shooting in 1080p full HD video.

 

At the recent hands-on event, we got to take a look at the Nitro HD, and were impressed by the feel of the phone and its camera quality. Less favorably, the screen colors weren't as brilliant as expected, and the LTE speed slowed dramatically as we took it away from the event location. (Looks like AT&T is slowly rolling out LTE in New York City.) There's still plenty of testing to do, so come back soon for our full review of this high-powered Android phone.
