LG Optimus 3D Smartphone Launches at MWC. Weeks of online rumors and teaser trailers on YouTube come to fruition with the launch of the LG Optimus 3D Smartphone and the LG Optimus 3D tablet (sold as the G-Slate in the United States) both took center stage at the Mobil World Congress in Barcelona Spain.
The powerful Android Smartphone features a 4.3-inch 3D lentiucular screen which generates a 3D effect without the need for special 3D glasses.
The phone also comes with dual 5 megapixel cameras so you can record and view 3D images and video on the phone. You can also adjust the depth of the 3D. LG and You Tube recently joined forces and created a special 3D application.
Besides the 3D features, the LG phone also boasts a 2GHz dual-core processor.
According to a recent article in CNET the Optimus 3D will be one of the more powerful multi-function Android based Smartphone’s released in the first half of 2011.
Google’s android 3.0 platform and the Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile processor power the Optimus 3D tablet. The Optimus 3D tablet features dual cameras for true 3D capture. The tablet will require the use of 3D glasses.
The phone has a summer release date, which is expected to coincide with the release of Apple’s latest iPhone.
Another bit of 3D info is the recent collaboration between Sky and LG. Sky will be working with LG to create 3D content for the Optimus 3D. The deal mirrors the current deal that Sky has in place with Nintendo’s 3DS. Look for more news in the coming weeks as the 3DS readies its launch and more 3D hand-held players come to market.
