Three UK Will Sell LG Optimus 3D

Three UK has confirmed via Twitter that it will be selling the LG Optimus 3D without saying when it will selling it.

It all started with a video showing the dual core 3D capable handset and was followed later by a confirmation that the LG Optimus 3D was indeed coming to the smallest independent UK mobile phone operator.

This paves the way for even smaller MVNO's like Virgin Mobile or Tesco Mobile to offer the smartphone to their clients at launch.

The phone will be based on the LG Optimus 2X which was announced at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas nearly one month go.

It will offer full glass-free auto-stereoscopic 3D display with HDMI-out, DLNA compatibility, Wi-Fi and a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset.

Given that the LG Optimus 2X can be pre-ordered for as little as £470 from Play.com, it is perfectly conceivable that the Optimus 3D will carry a £50 to £100 premium.

There's also a risk that the Optimus 3D and the 2X compete with each other given that they share almost the same specification.
