Are 3-D Cell Phones The Future?

View Comments

2 dimensions were never enough for us.

The LG Optimus 3D made waves at the Mobile World Congress when it was announced. A glasses-free 3D experience coupled with powerful hardware and 4G speeds – it was only a matter of time before this phone washed up on our shores.

AT&T announced recently that they’d be releasing the handset on their network in the near future, calling it now the LG Thrill 3D. We don’t know whether or not this 3D fad is going to stick around, but if companies keep putting out good looking products like this that offer a glasses-free 3D experience, well, we may just have to pick one of these bad boys up to see if it’s worth it’s weight.

The only apparent downside to this phone is it appears it will be shipping with Android 2.2 (Froyo) rather than the newer Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). AT&T promises an upgrade to 2.3, however, and aside from that shortcoming the specs on this phone certainly don’t disappoint:

  • Features the latest nVidia Tegra 2 Dual-Core processor
  • 4G Connectivity
  • 4.3″ Stereoscopic Display
  • Dual 5 Mega pixel stereoscopic camera for taking 3D pictures and video
  • 8 GB Internal Storage, expandable with included 8 GB SD card
No release date has been announced as of yet, but for those of you interested in reading more, take a look at AT&T’s press release on the next page.
