LG will be conducting an exclusive event this coming Thursday, December 01, at 6-8pm. They may not have given a clue in their teaser invitation, but this would be the official unveiling of the LG Nitro HD as many expect. The Nitro has been long rumored to be the Optimus LTE for AT&T. But even before the Thursday event, AT&T made the first move and announced the official release date of the LG Nitro HD on its LTE shelves due on December 04, 2011.
