LG Optimus 3D – The World’s First 3D Smartphone, Now Playing

The LG Optimus 3D is a beast. And as the name suggests, it uses the 3D technology. It is perhaps the world’s first in this category. Launched in the last  Mobile World Congress, 14th to 17th February at Barcelona, it made waves all over the blogsphere. You can get one at Amazon now.

With this 3D phone, one can take photos and load them easily. It uses a dual camera system to take the Left and Right and then merge them. The photo comes as a 3D image. The Optimus comes with 1GHz  OMAP4 (Open Multimedia Application Platform Version 4) dual-core processor from Texas Instruments, a dual-channel memory to ensure users have enough power to work on 3D video on the handset. Users get the chance to share 3D videos and pictures via wireless and wired connectors, all and including High Definition Multimedia Interface.

It is also Digital Living Network Alliance networking certified which means that it uses standards-based technology to make it easier for consumers to use, share and enjoy their digital photos, music and videos.

The Optimus 3D runs on Android OS 2.2  and 4.3-inch full touch-screen that lets users view 3D images and video without using the custom 3D glasses. This phone is massively promoted in Youtube as the LG and Youtube  signed a partnership deal.  In a joint statement by the two companies, they said,

“The new partnership is part of a broader push into 3D entertainment by LG and the world’s largest online video community. YouTube and LG collaborated to enable the delivery and sharing of 3D video onto mobile devices in a way that makes it simple and easy for consumers.”
